We're thrilled to announce that we have been invited to participate in the NGV's Melbourne Art Book Fair coming up at the beginning of May. As one of the featured publishers/artists, alongside Printed Matter (New York), Dawn Press, The Narrows, Perimeter Books, and our good friend Theo Strasser, Gracia and I will be making a whole lot of new things especially for our stall. A couple of limited edition collaged artists' books are already in the pipeline, as well as many new zine titles. (We won't be staying at 82 of each for long!)
As always, keep an eye on our instagram feed for tiny previews of new work.
So much afoot! We can't wait!
With our Salvaged Relatives and our animals, see you there.
Melbourne is a literary city, of readers and curious minds. Celebrating Melbourne’s diverse literary heritage and love of printed matter, and international recognition as one of only eleven worldwide UNESCO Cities of Literature, the NGV presents the Melbourne Art Book Fair in 2015.
A new project of its kind in Australia, the Melbourne Art Book Fair provides a unique art, architecture and design experience for visitors to the NGV.
The 2015 Melbourne Art Book Fair will be the first of a series of annual art book events developed by the NGV. From 1-3 May 2015, the inaugural Melbourne Art Book Fair brings together emerging and established publishers, artists, writers and designers. Stallholders at the Melbourne Art Book Fair will provide visitors with access to artists’ books, catalogues and monographs, periodicals and independent publications, showcasing new types of art publishing, in the one venue at NGV International.
As well as showcasing local and national publishers, the 2015 Melbourne Art Book Fair is proud to present special international guests Printed Matter (USA), making their Australian debut, and a curated focus on Japanese publishing.
The Melbourne Art Book Fair will also feature a dynamic program of free talks, forums and performances, as well as spaces to enjoy food and drinks and music, set within a uniquely designed experience by Melbourne Architecture firm Fold Theory.
