I need some feedback on this site from our members - can you describe for me what benefits you see from Artist Books 3.0 and why you think it is worth being part of this online community?
All the best,
The State Library of Queensland has just posted commentaries that Vicky and I have done on the artists' book 'Monologues', a book of mezzotints by Graeme Peebles and a text by Gottfried Benn.
It is a great opportunity to engage in a commentary about a significant work held by the SLQ that is available for online viewing. SEE link below...

Hello artist friends, near and far! We've received a number of inquiries about how people can submit work for The MCBA Prize 2012. Well, since The MCBA Prize is a biennial award, and we awarded it most recently in 2011, the next round will not be until 2013. We hope to release submission guidelines and accept submissions around December 2012 or January 2013. Work created between April 2011 and April 2013 will be eligible. So please stay tuned! :)
