    CALL FOR ARTISTS’ BOOKS

           ‘WITHOUT BOUNDARIES’
                  Exhibition
Since its establishment in 1998, Australian Bookbinders Exhibition has held annual
designer bookbinding exhibitions. In 2007, ABE invited Sydney’s College of Fine Arts to
include their students artists' books within the exhibition. The response was exciting and
ABE will now also hold annual exhibitions exclusively for artists' books.

ABE’s first exhibition of artists’ books will be held at:
