The emphasis is on quality of construction, and functionality of the finished book. Attention to detail rather than complexity of the artwork will be the criterion this year.
The presentation of the challenge will be at a barbeque on or at the beach, and will also be our end of year meeting in November. The Venue is yet to be finalized.
So get scrounging at your local op shop, and like last year, lets see what unusual secrets can be found in the different editions. Take some before and after shots, and get binding.
Conservation and Rare Books behind the scenes. An opportunity to meet the conservation staff and see some of the projects they are involved in, learning of the techniques and facilities of conservation. Folowed by a look at some rare title from the Library Collection.
Registration is essential and numbers are limited. Please go to the registration page and register.
