DESCRIPTION

A selection of artist-made books from around the world and our annual open call.
This exhibition promotes and encourages artists’ unconventional ideas about books. We ask artists to explore the book as an object, book-installations, one-offs, author's books, artist's books, writer's books, experimental and limited editions, fine press books and the like. Curated through a number of open calls held internationally and nationally.


We live in the 21st century, the century of technology, of computers and mass media,
all of which are separating us and our children from the written word.
In a few years, if this direction of our civilized world continues, books will disappear.
-Dorothea Fleiss
