The Australian Library of Art Artists’ Books Collection at State Library of Queensland is a nationally significant collection. Thanks to the generosity of the Siganto Foundation, the Australian Library of Art at SLQ is offering a further two Artists’ Books Fellowships.

The Creative Fellowship is open to artists’ book makers to create a new work based on State Library collections.

The Research Fellowship provides an opportunity to explore the field of artists’ books in more depth, generating new knowledge about artists’ books from SLQ’s extensive collection. Read about the work of past fellows on the Australian Library of Art blog or view Fellows’ reports in the Siganto Foundation Artists’ Book Seminar webcasts.

The Fellowships offer a stipend of $9,000 each, priority access to the collections, and research support from specialist librarians. Applications are open now until 24th November 2015.
