CODEX Foundation International Book Fair

Yesterday was the start of the Codex Foundation International Book Fair featuring hand-printed, hand-bound book treasures from around the world! It was pretty incredible to see that the book arts are alive and well. One of the standout books for me was Paul Frenzeny’s Chinatown Sketches: An Artist’s Fascination with San Francisco’s Chinese Quarter, 1874-1882.  These incredible illustrated woodcuts were first published in Harper’s Magazine to give insight into everyday life in San Francisco’s China Town. The fair runs into Wednesday so if you’re in the Bay Area stop by Craneway Pavillion to support the books and their makers.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
