Handwritten, Handbound 2012

Belconnen Arts Centre is the venue for the 2012 exhibition of the Canberra Craft Bookbinders’ Guild & Canberra Calligraphy Society.

The Canberra Craft Bookbinders Guild is dedicated to promoting the art of the hand-bound book, and this sumptious survey of works will feature our best in both traditional bookbinding designs and more contemporary alternative bindings. Members of the Canberra Calligraphy Society are passionate about the beauty of letters; their works will illustrate older, traditional scripts used in pre-printing years, modern scripts and artistic ways of interpreting words. There will also be many examples of how these two crafts combine in stunning ways.
