Event / 24 October 2014
The Association of
Book Crafts NZ is hosting its first International conference in Auckland, 24th
to 26th October 2014 in the central city at Auckland University of Technology.
The conference provides and exciting opportunity to be inspired by and learn
more about book production of both traditional and innovative structures
including design; conservation/history; illustration; book arts; book collecting;
education; exhibition of books etc.
The keynote speakers are Julie Chen from California and Dominic Riley from the
UK who will be supported by line up of 20 high level presenters. On the final
day the conference will be drawn to a close with a panel discussion – What is
the future of the book? Chaired by Iain Sharp, this will be a lively and
potentially contentious conclusion to the conference weekend.
There are also a number of exhibitions, workshops and events planned to
coincide with the conference including the exhibition Janus Press:The New Zealand Connection,
which will be on at Objectspace from 17 October to 1 November. Further information and registration details for the conference can
