Print Fair weekend roundup!

Department,Events,Exhibitions,Resources — KVH @ 11:27 am, Monday, November 9th, 2009

Boy, if you missed out on the NYC IFPDA and E/AB Print Fairs this weekend, you really missed out. The weather was fantastic, the crowds were easily managed, the print work was far reaching, numerous, and completely accessible.  I genuinely hope you made it up.

Our friends at Printeresting, who had their own event this weekend, wrote up a really fabulous review of the two fairs – and rather than me repeating them, I’ll just send you there.
