National Works on Paper 2016

We're chuffed that the Stick-nest rat edition of our artists' book, Because I Like You, is destined for Mornington Peninsula Gallery's 2016 National Works on Paper exhibition.

Turning the pages of the Polar bear edition of Because I Like You for our former art history lecturer, Dr. Sophia Errey, on a Saturday at the fair is 'all kinds of yay.' #NGVABF


Thank-you to everyone who swung by our stand and leafed through our zines and new work. It was a pleasure to show you our jaguars, giraffes, tigers, and other pressed animals on the page. A real pleasure indeed.

From Dear tails to Whiskers and Bristles, over the coming days, we'll list our nine new zine titles on our online store, for those of you who couldn't make it along.

In the meantime, you can 'turn the pages,' as it were, of our artists' books, The Company You Keep and Closer to Natural.
