Hi everyone, I will be standing down from my position of editor at the July AGM.

I wanted to advertise this fact now so that any one who would like an opportunity to help assemble the May/June issue, with a view to taking over, could do this with me next month.

You can contact me to discuss this at editor@vbg.net.au

Case Binding 101 is the first workshop for those considering making their own books.

Sidney Nolan Landscapes and Legends, a set text.  

  This  is the exhibiton catalogue of th retrospective exhibition 1937-1987, and consists of 176  A4 pages  in 11 sections with numerous colour and black and white pictures for inspiration.   10 copies of uncut sheets are available upon registration or you may purchase your own copy and rebind.

I will be opening my bindery as a trial on Thursday evenings  in May to allow Guild members another option for  their projects. The Bindery is small, allowing only 6 people plus myself if we want to do serious work.  However happy to have others drop in and see the facilities.
