The Creative Fellowship is open to artists’ book makers to create a new work based on State Library collections.


The Research Fellowship provides an opportunity to explore the field of artists’ books in more depth, generating new knowledge about artists’ books from SLQ’s extensive collection. Read about the work of past fellows on the Australian Library of Art blog.

Hi All,

We are now accepting submissions for the 5th Sheffield International Artist's Book Prize. This include submissions to the Student prize. The Student Prize is open to anyone still studying (e.g. PhD, MA, BA or equivalent) as well as those graduating in 2015. The Prize is also open to anyone who graduated in 2014 provided their book entry was produced while still a student. This includes both Part Time and Full time students of any age on courses of any kind. The Student Prize will be decided by jury. All entries for the Student Prize will be automatically entered into the Exhibition Prize and jury prizes.

It would be great if you could send this out to any students or educational institutions you know and encourage artist's bookmakers to enter!

As a change to the submission process this year, we are only accepting submissions made digitally through CuratorSpace. We will ask you to forward your book once it has been accepted and we have all the information we require.

Terms and Conditions

Closing date for digital submissions: 31st May 2015
Final date for receipt of books: 30th June 2015
Exhibition dates: 7th October – 31st October, 2015

The Sheffield International Artist’s Book Prize and Exhibition is open to makers of artists’ books in any format and from anywhere in the world. We have no desire to engage in discussion about what constitutes an artist’s book beyond clarifying that the prize is not concerned with books about art or artists, but books as art.

This year’s prize is supported using public funding from Arts Council England.

- The prize is OPEN TO ALL and FREE TO ENTER.

- ALL BOOKS selected for the Prize will feature in the exhibition.

- PRIZE MONEY of £1000 (US$1500) will be awarded in 2015 and there will be up to ten Prize winners.

I only had time to glance quickly at your site, but it looks wonderful. Did you post a comment like the one you left here on the Book Arts List? If not, you definitely should. In addition, you should contact Peter Verheyen about getting your site listed as a resource on the Book Arts Web.  (

For some reason, the photos after the first post are not coming up in my browser (Firefox). I thought the problem might be that I have Ghostery blocking the trackers, but when I disabled it, I still couldn't see the pictures. It could be because of some other browser add-on I have, so this is my problem. But you may want to ask some other people to check the site with Firefox to see if they are having problems too.

Good luck, and thanks for you & your grandfather for your helpful work.

Hello everybody and thank you for accepting me into your community.

Over the past few months myself and my recently retired grandfather have started to put together a dedicated bookbinding tutorial/instructional website to help others out there who are interested in bookbinding and book related arts. I take care of the site design and tech. part of it whilst my grandfather uses his experience to write the content.

We would welcome any feedback or suggestions you might have on the site as a whole. Also, if there are any particular topics that anyone might enjoy reading about, please let me know and I'll pass onto my grandfather to get writing! He has a strong passion for book binding and has over 40+ years of experience in the trade, if anybody has any questions then please ask away, he's a kind old fellow that loves to help others.

The website is called iBookBinding and the address is:

We hope you like it.

‘The Story of Sunderland’ is a community project that  celebrates the significant relationship that the area’s residents have with Benedict Biscop, who in 674 AD established the monastery of Wearmouth-Jarrow at the mouth of the Wear, the very site where the National Glass Centre now stands.  Currently on display on their balcony gallery is a series of hand made books made by a group of adutls new to print and bookbinding.  The work responds to the historical significance of the area and celebrates the contribution made by both Biscop & Bede. 

I worked with this group for 10 weeks and have been absolutely amazed at the depth and clarity of their skills and ideas. If you are in the area, why not check out the work and find out more about Biscop & Bede.

SLQ also has a bunch of teachers resources on their website here:



Comment by Shay on January 6, 2010 at 22:42
The children I teach have produced some extraordinary bookart. As collaborative journals, altered books and the straight up joy of purposefully making a book from start to finish, they continue to startle and inspire me. I wonder what the ethical considerations of posting pictures of their work would be?
