Biblio Artist Books at Clunes Booktown

After an eventful month in London (more about that in later posts) we returned to Australia just in time for Clunes Booktown on the weekend of 3 & 4 May. As reported in our last post, Moth Woman Press were proud to be invited to participate in Booktown’s inaugural Biblio-Artist Books, which was curated by Nicholas Jones. Fellow Biblio artists were David Frazer, Angela Cavalieri, An Kyunghee, Gracia Haby, Louise Jennison, Deanna Hitti, Tai Smith, Dianne Longley and Nicholas Jones. The State Library of Victoria and Melbourne University’s Baillieu Library also had impressive displays.

There was no time to acknowledge the inevitable jetlag or the nasty dose of flu that accompanied me back to the Antipodes. Over an incredibly hectic but exhilarating weekend we had hundreds of visitors, many of them new to artist books. There was much positive response to our own work and to Biblio in general.
