Earlier this month, a friend and I went on a long awaited trip to Chicago to attend the 28th annual Printer’s Row Lit Festival. Two days filled with books, publishers, authors, postcards, posters, journals and so much more.
Sunshine and crowds were in full force on both days of the festival. Estimated attendance: 130,000.
We started early and found shade where we could. At one point we went into a nice cool bar to refresh ourselves and give our feet a break. And later we visited Sandmeyer’s Bookstore which was conveniently on a sidewalk along the festival path.
The booth displaying these handmade journals was extremely popular. They had hundreds of different sizes and designs available and they were a joy just to admire and behold.
But mostly it was about the books. They were everywhere!
