Thank-you to everyone, bright and new, and bright and dear, who swung by our zine stall at this year's Festival of the Photocopier at the Melbourne Town Hall. It was, it is, always a thrill.
Thank-you, Sticky Institute, for another great fair.
You'll find our online store furnished with available titles, should you hanker to fill a gap in your collection.
Sticky Institute's zine fair this weekend. We'll be there. Will you?
Swing by, say hi, and meet our paper animals.
Sticky Institute presents:
Festival of the Photocopier Zine Fair 2017
Melbourne Town Hall
Sunday the 12th February
While the preorder campaign (to assist with the printing costs) has folded its wings, it is still possible to reserve a copy of Prattle, scoop, trembling: a flutter of Australian birds through our online store.
We will be releasing the book from our stall at this year's NGV Melbourne Art Book Fair, where you are welcome to pick up your preordered copies from us (from Friday the 17th to Sunday the 19th of March, 2017).
We will be talking about our artists' book, Prattle, scoop, trembling: a flutter of Australian birds (2016), at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery from 1pm on Sunday the 5th of February, 2017. Penny Byrne and Stu James will also be discussing their works within the current exhibition, Birds: Flight paths in Australian art.
We hope to see you there.
We make artists' books collaboratively and have been doing so since 1999. To date, we have released 87 titles (unique state artists’ books, and limited editions of 10, 25, and 50), and 105 zine titles.
Our artists' books can be found in the collections of Artspace Mackay; Deakin University Library; Melbourne Museum; Melbourne University Library; Monash University Library; Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery; 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); University of the West of England (UK), and others.
We have exhibited our works on paper at ACMI Mediatheque, Counihan Gallery, Craft, Fremantle Arts Centre, Geelong Gallery, LaTrobe Regional Gallery, Port Jackson Press Print Gallery, Maroondah Art Gallery, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, RMIT School of Art Gallery, State Library of Victoria, University of Melbourne Baillieu Library, University of West England (UK), and others.
We created the unique state version of Prattle, scoop, trembling: a flutter of Australian birds especially for the exhibition Birds: Flight paths in Australian Art currently at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery (until the 12th of February, 2017). The piece has been acquired by Artspace Mackay.
With our pozible campaign we are seeking to make Prattle, scoop, trembling: a flutter of Australian birds into a printed edition of 100.
And now only 14 hours remain for your chance to preorder a copy.
Thank-you for your support so far, and always.
With only 29 hours remaining on our pozible campaign forour artists' book printed edition of #PrattleScoopTrembling, we are looking forward to hearing the running movement of the press.
Thank-you for your cheer, donations, and preorders, each and every one of you.

Throw your hands in the air like a dancing cactus! And just like that, we've reached our pozible campaign funding goal to cover a third of the printing costs for a Prattle, scoop, trembling edition. Many, many thanks. We are so humbled.
The campaign is still running, and we are hoping to raise, through your preorders (and/or donations) enough to cover the whole of the printing cost. Should you wish to earmark a copy, it's not too late to do so.
Thank-you. We couldn't do this without you.
Through the cave. Closer, closer. Thank-you for your interest, good winged trumpeting, donations, and preorders of #PrattleScoopTrembling. We are so grateful.
And, we are almost there. The campaign runs for a further 8 days, but this collage, like the one beforehand, is to say thank-you for your ongoing support.

(Thank-you for your interest, trumpeting, donations, and preorders of Prattle, scoop, trembling: a flutter of Australian birds through Pozible so far.)
We have just launched a Pozible campaign to create a printed edition of Prattle, scoop, trembling: a flutter of Australian birds. It will be an edition of 100, and you can preorder your copy (or make a donation to our project) until the 31st of January, 2017.
Our final interview for the holiday period evolved into a 'true or false' quiz for Melbourne-based artists Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, AKA Gracia & Louise. Together and independently (but most often together, and most often with a four-legged friend or two), G + L are very prolific makers, doers, dreamers — delightful to follow on the gram. Kind thanks to Gracia for taking the time to write, and to both she and Louise — for always being willing partners to our projects and flights of fancy.
