Prattling in Mackay

Delighted to chance upon our birds in our artists' book, Prattle, scoop, trembling: a flutter of Australian birds, in a promotion for Artspace Mackay's "diverse collection of artists' books," which you can "enjoy in the Tate Adams Reading Pod, a purpose-built space for visitors to have unprecedented access to the collection" (in the latest Art Guide).

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.

Thank-you, from the Laughing kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae) and us
