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.

Men, we're often told, are their own worst enemies when it comes to health. Their poorer health outcomes, when compared to women, are often attributed to an apparent reluctance to seek help. Researchers at the University of Adelaide's Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health (FFCMH), however, argue otherwise and set out to dispel the myths and re-shift the blame away from men and "masculinity" and back onto health services.

In this informative presentation, senior FFCMH team members will mark the Centre's 10-year anniversary and partnership between the University of Adelaide and the Freemasons Foundation, by presenting a compelling, evidence-based case for male-specific health care initiatives.


Professor Gary Wittert is the University of Adelaide Mortlock Professor of Medicine, and heads the University's Discipline of Medicine and the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health. He is also a senior consultant endocrinologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and is Independent Chair of the Weight Management Council of Australia.

Professor Robert Adams is a senior respiratory and general physician at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and a member of the University of Adelaide's Discipline of Medicine. He directs the Basil Hetzel Research Institute's Health Observatory at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and chairs the SA Health Literacy Alliance.

Dr Sean Martin is a National Health and Medical Research Council early-career research fellow in the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health. He is also project manager for the Florey Adelaide Male Ageing Study, one of Australia's largest and longest running cohort studies of men and their health and well-being as they age
