Nineteen: a compilation box of zines, 2017 – 2018

A limited edition compilation set of all our recent zines, one atop the other, from the largest to the smallest, to make a happy squeeze.

As with previous sets, each box set contains the first of each zine edition released within that time frame. Housed in giant matchboxes featuring our recent collaged landscape, Ripples in the Open, editions are in the process of being delivered to the collections of Melbourne University Library, National Library of Australia, and State Library Victoria.

From 2017
Limbed
Winged
Dove, love, wash
Here, there
Duck in, duck out
Flippered and flightless
Pattern
Round, circle, dot
Take a lesson from the ground
Seasonal museum sketches (autumn)
It was a familiar pattern


From 2018
Your gelatine silver print, in the shape of the full moon
Paw Pad Path
Looped
I think all the world is falling
No longer six feet under
Disrupted and rumpled
Dim wood, spark bright
A warmed pebble in my hand

We have two more sets left, if you are interested. Please contact us to find out more.

The Dome was already one of the most beautiful rooms in Melbourne and now it’s even more so. Looped: artist books in the round, our new display by artists Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, opened on 4 August in the La Trobe Reading Room. Gracia and Louise have turned the cabinet cases around the Reading Room’s dais into pages in a story. They’ve created five artist books that, through collage and the written word, tell a complete tale. It’ll be on display in the La Trobe Reading Room until 26 November. To celebrate the display, Gracia and Louise took over our Instagram account on 4 August to introduce themselves and share their work.
