NEWPORT PAPER & BOOK ARTS FESTIVAL

The 23rd annual Newport Paper & Book Arts Festival (NPBAF) was held the weekend of April 20th. With 107 participants including 21 NORBAG members (four who were also instructors), it was the largest NPBAF attendance recorded. There was a wonderful variety of classes that covered surface design, collage, printing, mixed media, assemblage, various book bindings, and the Dremel tool. We were lucky to experience beautiful sunny weather the whole weekend along with a robust ocean breeze in the afternoons. Included below are some photos from the festival.


We love the Sylvia Beach Hotel!
