Wrapped and Encased: an exhibition of envelopes as containers and messengers curated by Sophie Loss and Mary Yacoob

This exhibition was at the entrance to the book fair and contained the works of over 50 artists who responded to an open call of the theme. The curation of the exhibition took a very considered and sensitive approach to these often slight but fascinating pieces, allowing the viewer to move between the works at their own pace.

Performances took place within the exhibition by Sara Dell Onze and a drawing work by Jane Grisewood and Carali McCall.
