artists' book exhibition II in galleria katariina

There's currently a beautiful, beautiful artists' book exhibition in Galleria Katariina, Helsinki. It's the second in kind, the first one being in 2013. This time round there are artists' books by 58 artists or groups from Finland and many other countries. Truly a rare treat! Well, of course we have the amazing RikArt collection here as well, but an excellent grand scale artists' book exhibition is still quite something.
