Catching up with some news


Vitruvius pictured above is one of the Ten Books on Architecture currently on display in the exhibition The Collections on View at the Pratt Institute Library, Brooklyn Campus, New York during May to August. 
 
 
I am very pleased that a copy of The River City: Eyewitness Document, about the 2011 flood in  Brisbane and currently on display at the Libris Awards, has been purchased by the State Library of Queensland for their collection. 
 
 
One of my Book Art Object books That Unbearable Lightness has been selected for the Artists Book Award, Books...Beyond Words - Revolution to be held at the East Gippsland Art Gallery, Bairnsdale, Victoria from 10th August to 4th September.

Great to share in all of your good news (albeit belatedly). I'm so pleased the SLQ has bought River City - it belongs there. Wishing you well in EG as well.

Ditto Fiona's comments - it would have been a great shame had SLQ not purchased your beautiful book. Well done.

Congratulations Helen! How fabulous on all your great news especially glad to hear of the (essential) State Library purchase!! And yes I relate with the having a gig in your own town thing. But at least bookart is easier to post then other artforms.
