Festival of Free Publishers "BooFest"

One week ago the 2nd festival of free publishers "Boo" was held in two rooms of tiny gallery at Rabochaya street. Small publishing houses, illustrators, art-bookers, handmade books, stuff and papers makers were presented.

The small publishing houses decided to join the efforts to develop and spread their activity in the market which belongs to large and rich publishing houses.
I hope this association will survive at our book market.

There is a workshop going on on yellow table. The girls do collages from everything they have around: magazine's cuts, cellophane, acrylic paint.

The walls around the stairs were decorated by the participants of the exhibition and the boxed with free books were put there (upper photo).
Signs on the boxes: "Happiness for free!", "Nobody will leave bookless!"
