We all know the old saying about not judging a book by its cover – but when we browse the bookshelf we often can’t help doing just that.

Join special guest speakers from Australia’s thriving book design community to learn about the creative process of making a book irresistible, and enjoy a display celebrating local publishers, including Melbourne’s Sun Books and the University of Queensland Press.
