Pyramid, which has been an incubator for 30 years for visual artists, especially papermakers, is hosting dozens of international, national and local artists who will talk about their methods and their results. Demonstrations and displays will include pop-up books, letterpress, digital printmaking and flipbooks. The programming features lectures, films, workshops and a juried artist book and print fair.

Prize-winning American artist Mimi Shapiro, who specializes in altered books, and acclaimed British designer Paul Johnson, who will discuss the book as architecture, are among the speakers.

The events will be held at the Silver Spring Civic Building in the downtown area at Ellsworth and Fenton, and Pyramid Atlantic's nearby headquarters on Georgia Avenue.

The admission to the 2 day events ranges from $10 for one day at the fair to a package of $55 for multiple events. Everyone under 12 is free.
