Scores of artists’ books, zines, and prints

Melbourne Art Book Fair

in the Great Hall
National Gallery of Victoria
Friday 16th – Sunday 18th March, 2018

For a fourth year running, we are returning to the Melbourne Art Book Fair at the NGV, and with us we will be bringing scores of new artists' books, zines, and prints. Some of these new titles you may have seen unfurling on instagram, and on Friday the 16th of March, should you be in the neighbourhood, you can see them with your own eyes, leaf through them with your own fingers, nestle them in your own palm.

For those curious, we will be releasing the following zines at the fair,
Your gelatine silver print, in the shape of the full moon
Looped
and Paw Pad Path.

The still warm zines,
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
and It was a familiar pattern.

And we will have editions of our artists' books,
Disrupted and rumpled
Dim wood, spark bright
A warmed pebble in my hand
and Prattle, scoop, trembling: a flutter of Australian birds
available for you to see.

See you beneath the Leonard French, this weekend, at the
