How I entered there

The How I entered there exhibition showcased a selection of superb artist books and prints created at the Book Studio at the Australian National University. The exhibition celebrated the art of the book, and the special relationship between image and written word.

The works displayed ranged from folios of limited-edition prints to beautifully hand-printed and bound books in which images and text complement one another. The printing techniques used included etching, linocut, lithography and silkscreen. Some books were bound in traditional style, while others were folded concertina-style or into innovative forms, then boxed or wrapped and tied. Materials used included specialist and handmade papers, fine cloth and leather.

This exhibition was held from 16 March to 17 June 2007.
