I was delighted to find that Scott McCarney and Keith Smith are giving a free lecture at the State Library of Queensland (Brisbane) on May 27th. I suspect neither of them need much of an introduction to book artists in BookArtObject, and that many of us have at least one of Keith Smith's bookbinding books on our shelves!
Knowledge in Depth: West to East
one-of-a-kind altered book by Scott McCarney, 2008
If you're in the Brisbane area and would like to go to the lecture click here to go to the SLQ website's event page to find out more information or go directly to the event booking page here. As you know, Scott is participating in this round of BookArtObject so I'm excited to hear him speak.
For those of you who took part in BookArtObject Edition Three (Jeanette Winterson's Art & Lies), you may like to know that I am taking the opportunity to meet up with Helen Cole, librarian at SLQ, to discuss the possible purchase of that edition by the State Library of Queensland - more news as and when I have spoken to her.
