The State Library of Victoria's the La Trobe Journal: Creating and collecting artists’ books in Australia (No 95 March 2015), for which we created the cover collage, is now available as a pdf download online.
This special issue of the La Trobe Journal focuses on the development of artists’ books as an art practice in Australia. The digital revolution has led many to question the future of the book, yet more artists are involved with making books than ever before. Artists, printmakers, letterpress printers and binders are creating and designing books that draw upon and extend the traditional format.
On the State Library of Victoria's blog, thanks to Anna Metcalfe, you can read all about our collaborative work.
Gracia & Louise on making artists' books: This month we welcome guest bloggers Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, the artists who created the spectacular piece featured on the cover of the latest La Trobe Journal. In this guest post, Gracia & Louise discuss their work with books and paper, and the nature of inspiration and collaboration.
