"Hi Victor, we'll have to catch up and hear about equatorial things. Note sure if I'll be at Codex, may well be at my 30th MIFF film that evening. But next event, whenever art, wine, and intellectuals gather, I'll be sure to see you.…"
Hope you have had a chance to relax and put your feet up after a few busy days, and that's not even counting the busy months in the lead-up. Congratulations to you and all the staff and volunteers who help make it such a great…"
"Hi Peter, Robert and I are hoping to get up and see the show before it comes down. I'll email you after that with some comments. Congrats on getting this long-running project up and running and into the world. I had a quick check on Libraries…"

"haven't managed, though Christine agreed to come along. Have been so absurdly busy, and heading off on leave at end of next week. But I'd like to touch base with her, at least, and possibly line up a time for November when I'm back,…"

Do you think you'll get the chance to see the Jacks exhibition in Bendigo? I'm really keen to get some direct feedback on the project. As you might have noticed from my post regarding the search for the obscure publication Free Media Bulletin, I'm still working on the project, with a greater focus on the early, more conceptual stuff ... I'm hopefull that I'll be able to take this further (with more of a link to books by other artists working at the same time ... big names like Le Witt, or Ian Burn, for example. Must make a point of going through all the SLV holdings that might be relevant. Peter
I am in Canberra, but when I am back in Adelaide, early next week, I will send off the invoice with the order numbers.
I will let you know when I am next in Melbourne to drop over the other books.
I had a wonderful day in Melbourne, lots of walking, and a gallery or too.
My postal address is PO Box 373 Hindmarsh SA 5007, and street address is 87 Frederick Street Welland SA 5007.
The email I sent you had a fail message so I am sending you my PO number via this site.
I will be in Melbourne next Wednesday/Thursday April 15/16, and wondering if I can meet with you and give you the book you ordered after the Brisbane Artist Book Fair! I could also show you my latest book as well? Wednesday would be best for me. Kindest regards, Dianne
