Pagination: the book as object


Pagination: The Book as Object & The Australian Book Design Awards

Wednesday 30 March  – Saturday 30 April 2016  |  The University Gallery

OFFICIAL OPENING: University Librarian, Gregory Anderson will launch the exhibitions on FRIDAY 1 APRIL from 5:30pm


Celebrate the book as an engaging vehicle for artistic imagination as well as excellence in Australian book design over the past year. Join us at the University Gallery for the launch of two exhibitions, Pagination: the Book as Object and the 2015 Australian Book Design Awards.

The work of local, national and international makers concerned with the book as a creative medium have been invited by curators, Caelli Jo Brooker and Gillean Shaw, to exhibit in Pagination, an exhibition that investigates the medium and meaning of the book, and more broadly of book arts as a contemporary mode of expression. Works represented in the exhibition range from sculptural book objects, altered books, and editioned letterpress works – to designed books, comics, digitally printed works, student zines and print on demand publications.
