"VABF | This weekend is the Vancouver Art Book Fair and there are quite a few cool print-related things going on around the city in conjunction with it. One that stands out for us is called “Letterpress and Lager” because it’s all about beer and print. Need we say more? The open studio event is happening on Saturday at the new Little Tokyo Letterpress space inside Chinatown’s International Centre for Arts and Technology building. Along with free snacks and the implied beer for sale, expect a day of print-related demos and hands-on activities, including the creation of some neat eco-friendly coasters for resting your lagers on. Find out more. Oh, and while you’re out, keep the theme going by hopping a couple blocks southeast to High Five Studio’s SIP + SHOP – READING RAINBOW EDITION." ... See MoreSee Less
