With 50 stallholders including local authors, artists, poets, writers, publishers, printers and booksellers, and more than 500 visitors expected, OXiB will feature new books and talks on the ecology of The Trap Grounds in north oxford, and birdwatching on Port Meadow, Otmoor and Wytham Woods.

In April, at a previous book fair, exhibitors included independent publishers such as Claret Press, Oxford ebooks, and Chris Andrews.

Cartoonist Korky Paul and other book illustrators were there, together with artists Diana Bell, Weimin He and John Buckley.

The book fair’s website says: “We offer the opportunity for new and established talent to showcase their work taking at our event in Oxford 2022.

Oxford Mail:

“It seems to be increasingly difficult for all but the most ‘already-successful’ authors to be accepted by traditional publishers, and/or receive recognition and profile in our mainstream media.

“Indie book fairs are becoming established elsewhere and since Oxford is a major city of arts and letters and renowned for writing and publishing it is not before time that the ever-growing Indie sector is to have its voice.”
