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.

Elder Conservatorium Chorale
Carl Crossin OAM - Conductor
Karl Geiger - Piano


War and peace, love and death, beauty and melancholy – music can encapsulate them all, and in no way more powerfully than through the pleading vibrancies of the human voice. This program explores life’s contradictions through the works of largely present-day composers from around the world. Featuring Jeffrey Van’s A Procession Winding Around Me for choir and guitar (settings of four civil wars poems by Walt Whitman) and John Tavener’s Funeral Ikos.
