    • Mo Crow says:

      Wayne and his bookbinders commitee get this show together each year to brng public awareness to the fine art of bookbinding
      they select the books according to this set of criteria
      • Must not have been publicly exhibited in Sydney beforehand
      • Must function as a book
      • Must be of strong construction
      • Must be non traditional – ie modern contemporary design
      • Design to reflect content
      I love exhibiting with them each year because the books do not have to be for sale, it is not a competition & a wonderful chance to have work in the Art Gallery of NSW!

    Congratulations, Mo, your book looks just fabulous there and in some pretty good company. I missed it of course, just never get my act together in time. Lovely to see Rosemarie there.
