Another exciting collection of Artists’ books will be on show from late September and will be available to view throughout the holidays, until the next exhibition in January 2017.
The theme for this exhibition will be works created by the Siganto Foundation Artists’ Book Fellows. While some of the books were created as part of their fellowship and have been based on State Library collection materials, others are artists’ books from the Australian Library of Art Artists’ Book Collection that the fellows have made as part of their artistic practice.
