Artists' Books 2012–2016

Whilst one is finished, another is in the works, be it as idea or the mechanics of the thing. The process, the interest, it is ongoing. We call upon a wide range of sources, all the while seeking to explore, through inventive narrative, a heady combination of new and existing worlds where wild thoughts take physical form and imagination given free rein.

Our artists' books can be found in the collections of: Artspace Mackay; Bibliotheca Librorum Apud Artificem; Deakin University Library; Melbourne Museum; Melbourne University Library; Monash University Library; National Gallery of Australia; National Gallery of Victoria; National Library of Australia; RMIT University Library; State Library of New South Wales; State Library of Victoria; State Library of Queensland; Tate (UK); UWE Bristol (UK).
