It is called Artist Book Collections and Exhibitions - and when you join you could try sending a 'message to group' that usually gets a good response.

Abigail - it may be an idea to also post your message on the Exhibitions group?

Hi all, I am looking for a few overseas venues (I am based in the UK) to tour my Micro-Pages project/exhibition to next year. If your library is interested please get in touch. All you require to show the exhibition is a microfilm reader machine that can handle a 35mm microfilm reel.

I should add that I'm only scouting for *Australian* wood type!
Comment by Caren Florance on January 26, 2009 at 14:50
I am always on the look-out for reasonably priced wood type. I am *not* interested in buying it piece by piece on ebay, or in seeing it made into contemporary furniture or sculpture. I would like to print with it!

If you come across any, or know someone who is selling some, please let me know. I would be most grateful.

I'm seeking any and all useful ideas, networking and information for the best ways to combine free-lance indexing, copyediting and proofreading work with free-lance bookbinding and book arts workshop presenting for small groups, in a way that will allow me to live and work in the UK. I want to relocate to Gloucestershire - I have a home with my soulmates in Nailsworth that awaits my presence! Any info.on opportunities for apprenticeship in book arts/bookbinding/small press publishing that would help me learn more and establish a presence in-country? I'm starting the next chapter in my life!

Melbourne, Australia

As a cornerstone of its UNESCO City of Literature initiative, the Victorian Government announced the creation of the Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas to recognise and promote Melbourne's international reputation as a literary, cultural and ideas capital. Melbourne is only the second UNESCO City of Literature in the world. Opening in 2009 within the State Library of Victoria, the Centre will become a hub and home for writing and ideas, providing key literary organisations, publishers, universities and the media with access to world class facilities.

The Centre which will be governed by an independent Board, and managed as an autonomous organisation, will co-ordinate a range of events including the annual Victorian Premier's Literary Awards, as well as lectures, debates, forums, book launches, and a program of prominent speakers on issues of the day.

The Director is responsible for all decisions regarding programming, marketing, promotion and development, ensuring the Centre presents the best thinkers and writers on contemporary issues and that its programs are a source of inspiration for creative writing and public discourse.

The Director should have a combination of high-level leadership, creative, presentation and relationship skills. The successful candidate will have knowledge of and a passion for literature, writing, issues and ideas, as well as business, marketing, managerial and administration skills, with the ability to enhance the financial position of the Centre.

The Director should have a proven reputation in writing, publishing, journalism or creative arts programming. Further information about the Centre and the City of Literature initiative is available from here.

A detailed position specification is available from Dean Ireland at Egon Zehnder 03 9678 9600.

Confidential expressions of interest to arrive by 7 November should be addressed to: Chairman, Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas, PO Box 367, Collins Street West VIC 8007 or sent by email to
