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.

Nineteen: a compilation box of zines, 2017 – 2018, in process

Focus on the Collection: Gracia Haby & Louise Jennison

Based in Melbourne, we work from home. And more often than not, we collaborate with each other. We rather fell into collaboration, many years ago now, and it is one based on harmony. To date, we have made 99 artists’ book titles and 127 zine titles.

We decided early on in our collaboration, through an organic process, not to polish the same skills. We naturally lent towards different things and now bring those different things together to make one work not possible without the other. Working this way, a third work is made that belongs to us both.

The two of us have been fans of the book for a long time now, and it is perhaps because no work is ever as you’d imagined or saw in your mind’s eye, that we keep working with books. Every step, every part of the process, every learning curve, holds us entranced. We love the challenge artists’ books present, the possibilities and history they hold, and the intimacy they can awaken in the reader. The flexible medium of the book holds us in its palm rather than us holding the book in our own palms. In the beginning, the medium of the artists' book seemed, to us, to be free of rules and regulations. It also presented many new things to consider, from page layout and sequence to typographical decisions, and such things we tossed in the air and arranged upon their landing. Working together has meant we were able to figure out the particulars through trial and error, and groundwork.

You can see an exhibition of our artists’ books at Artspace Mackay until the 3rd of February, 2019.

Paw Pad Path on display

There is still time to see our artists' book, Paw Pad Path, on display as part of the 2018 Libris Awards: Australian Artists' Book Prize at Artspace Mackay. The exhibition, which opened on Saturday the 26th of May, runs until Sunday the 19th of August, 2018.

The space between our understanding of the world and how a fox (in a painting) sees the world is vast, but this is what we were thinking, dreaming, scratching, sniffing, living as we worked on our most recent artists' book, Paw Pad Path (2018). It is of the earth as much as of the canvas and of history. And we are delighted that Paw Pad Path has been selected for the forthcoming 2018 Libris Awards: Australian Artists' Book Prize exhibition at Artspace Mackay.

The Libris Awards is an initiative of Mackay Regional Council through Artspace Mackay. The awards seek to develop awareness of the council’s significant collection of artists' books, and to develop the collection further through the acquisition of new works by leading Australian artists working in the field.
