Greetings to all those interested in the book arts in Australasia!
As President of The Book Arts Society of New Zealand, I can offer a
"pre-publication" announcement to Craig and the list about a forthcoming
International Miniature Book Show hosted by our organisation, to open in
Oamaru, South Island, NZ in October/November 1999. Details about the juried
show are available from me or from our web site when we are up and running.
We will be presenting an on-line exhibition in conjunction with the touring
show, so I'll keep you all posted.
The Book Arts Society has presented two other exhibitions in its short
eight year history: "The Art of the Book" in 1990, our inaugural show
profiling the history of the book and its making; and "BookWards 95" a
touring exhibition of contemporary artist's books. We run an annual Book
Arts Fair at the National Library of New Zealand in Wellington, and have a
publication list which includes a bi-annual newsletter and a letterpress
printed monograph series on great figures in the New Zealand book scene.
The book is very much alive and well and living in New Zealand!
Yours in print
