tura marrang now showing...

 I have loved bringing some of my booky works (old and new)

to the opening of the beautiful new Tura Marrang Library and Community Centre
in Tura Beach - far couth coast NSW
(ie just down the road a bit from my creek home) 

The new space is featuring some of my book-boat images


and little book boats I've made
as well as a book boat building site
for library patrons to make some little paper book-boats
to add to the display

I've cheekily popped a few boats in odd places... 

my video work looked FAB in the AV meeting room for opening day ceremonies...

but without a doubt my favourite thing
is how my 2 loooooooooooong books look
in the funny little wedge shaped display cabinet...

the looooooooooong books and boat installation
will be on display for a couple of months

( I think they like hanging out in this space...)

I love it when a plan that seems good in theory
actually comes together as hoped in practice

"To build up a library is to create a life.
It’s never just a random collection of books."
Carlos María Domínguez



  1. The long books are amazing, what patience to do all that stitching.

  2. wonderful. someone at an event in the last year or so spoke to me about a really long coptic bound book that someone is making in australia. i grinned and gave them your name!


thanks for all your lovely comments - your words are greatly appreciated xx
