Cover to Cover - Bribie Seaside Museum

Herewith my photosynth stitched photo of the

Cover to Cover 

exhibition now on at 
Bribie Island Seaside Museum
Bongaree  Qld 

Along with artists I am yet to meet
I have a few humble works in this group exhibition
alongside some very impressive works from 
bookmaking friends
Amanda Watson-Will 

The museum are also running a workshop programme
in conjunction with the exhibition.

There was a great old black and white film
from the 50's running in their little
cinemarette showing the
bookmaking processes of the day.


  1. Congratulations to you, Helen and Amanda. Would love to see some photos of individual works.

  2. Hi Vicki,
    I have recently posted photos of the three entries I submitted - they are:
    The Missing Typewriter Key
    Jacob's Ladder Book
    Mabel and Friends
    Thanks for the lovely comments you leave :}
    Hope the ground has stopped shaking in your part of the world!

  3. I haven't been up to see the show yet...hopefully next week. Congratulations on your selections, and thanks for the bloggy mention, too.

  4. Love your stitched photo Robyn! I haven't made it up to see the exhibition yet but hope to do so. Thanks for the mention.

  5. I would love to see this exhibition, but won't make it from Melbourne. I also have a book in it. With these hands.

  6. Oh, and now I've found images of all three of your books. They are all very impressive! The Jacob's ladder book particularly's much more interesting than I had expected from that structure. I had thought it somewhat limited...but yours tempts me to give it a go.

  7. Hi Penny, how lovely we all have books in this great little exhibition! I'm afraid I've obscured your book from where I was standing with the camera, but I must say it really appealed to me, both the construction and content. The printerly images of women's hands making things and the connectiveness amongst women that this implies is a beautiful idea. The space the exhibition is in is lovely and the people are all very nice and enthusiastic about the display. Must thank Papergail for bringing this little opportunity to our attention!. - PS: I found the Jacob's Ladder structure really fun to make and very popular with the kids in my art class - give it a go! A but tricky but great fun when you get your head around it :)
