The Norfolk Longbook   a community project

Help us produce the longest book in Norfolk

The Norfolk Longbook is an ongoing community project for artists and people that live in, or are inspired by the county of Norfolk. It takes the form of a concertina book which will continue to grow through submissions from the public and through workshops run throughout the year.   

The book will be on display annually at turn the page artists' book fair to enable the public to see its continuing progress.

Submissions from the recent Illuminated Letters Workshop at the turn the page artists' book fair 2014 will be accepted in to the Norfolk Longbook, please contact us for the postal address. 

Artists, poets and writers: all abilities welcome - Send us your work!

As long as it fits within our specifications (see below) and is Norfolk themed, it will be included. You could also attend a 'Make a Page' workshop, pages created at the workshops can be added to the Norfolk Longbook.

Our next workshops with artist Jules Allen are being organised now! Booking is always essential as places are limited, email us for details
