Cover to Cover: Exposing the Bookbinder's Ancient Craft

Date/Time: Friday, 28 July 2017 - Friday, 29 September 2017

Location: Barr Smith Library, Rare Books & Special Collections, Level 1

Cost: Free: All Welcome

Bookbinding is a humble pursuit. Rarely does it receive the attention and glamour afforded to other ancient crafts. Unlike the silversmith or glassblower, whose talents are immediately obvious, the binder's craft of construction is largely concealed, making it difficult to celebrate that which we cannot see.

Yet a binding offers so much more than mere protection; it is a story in itself.

Delve into this fascinating, lesser-known craft in the Barr Smith Library, where exposed bindings, rare and old books, bookbinding equipment, tools and supplies from both Rare Books & Special Collections and the curator's personal collection will be on display.

Angela Valamanesh - Everybody's Everything: Insect/Orchid

Work by artist Angela Valamanesh, drawn from her artist's residency at the University of Adelaide's Rare Books & Special Collections.

She has focused on mediated representations of the natural world in the Collection's glorious books featuring scientific illustrations, where orchids and their insect-like shapes create a new world of imagery and narratives.

Angela will be giving an Artist's Talk at midday on Wednesday 23 August 2017, all welcome.

This exhibition is a registered part of the SALA Festival, and is on display until Sunday 1 October during Barr Smith Library Opening Hours.
