Virgil’s Keep
(2017)
Virgil’s Keep is a response to ‘The Georgics’, an epic poem by Virgil on the challenges and virtues of agricultural life.
The reader passes through a series of eight gates: gates of possibility, of toil, of planting, of hope, of tending, of pestilence, of tempests & furies, and finally of harvest; markers of the gardener’s seasonal journey and visual markers across many Australian rural landscapes.
The eighth gate opens to reveal Virgil’s text: But lo! / A boundless space / We’ve travelled o’re / ‘tis time / our steaming horses / to unyoke
The eight paired relief prints and the dual binding generate a sense of enclosed space, ‘the keep’ of the title. 15.5 x 39.3cm. Bound by master bookbinder Fred Pohlmann. Edition of 6 signed and dated. Published by the artist and numero uno publications, grahame galleries + editions. Photographer Carl Warner.

Drawing on the ground (2015)
Part diary, part history, part fiction, part autobiography – Drawing on the ground is a reflection on the labour required to draw sustenance from the land. The book contains carbon paper drawings and handwritten texts making each copy in the edition slightly different. Drawing on the ground was the outcome of a research project undertaken at the State Library of Queensland and responds in particular to settler and explorer diaries held in their Collection and to a selection of artifacts from the Queensland Museum Collection. The book was bound by Fred Pohlmann using kangaroo skin in the manner of a 19th century Labour Book – a book used by employers to record the hours of labour and wages paid to employees. The State Library of Queensland holds many examples of Labour Books in their Collection. My project was made possible with the generous support of a Siganto Foundation Artist’s Book Creative Fellowship.
Handwritten text with carbon paper drawings; bound by Fred Pohlmann. Published by the artist in a variable edition of 5 signed, dated and numbered copies; 192pp; 22.7 x 31.5 x 2cm. Photographer Carl Warner.

Recounting Democracy
(2013)
The right to vote is a precious thing. This is highlighted in Davis’ recounting of democracy in Australia. Throughout Recounting Democracy, small watercolour marks represent votes for different parties. Each vote is numbered in graphite pencil, the votes accumulating as the reader proceeds through the thirty-two pages of the book, until the total number is determined for each party and translated into seats in parliament. Each book in the edition has a slightly different outcome. Davis explains, ’As I painted votes and numbered them (many thousands during the production of the edition), I thought about the contribution to democracy that each person makes as they enter a voting booth and mark their electoral paper with those finely-sharpened, but rather short graphite pencils provided by the Australian Electoral Commission.’ Tucked inside the back cover of Recounting Democracy is a photograph taken by the artist on the streets of Paris during the 2012 French Presidential election, a comic reminder that not everyone believes in the power of the vote.
Watercolour, graphite pencil, stamping; softbound red cover, stitched; pocket in back cover containing a photograph. Published by the artist in a variable edition of 5; stamped signature and date; editioned in pencil; 32pp; 20 x 30 x.5 cm.

SOLOMON (1995)
SOLOMON is made up of seven volumes. It developed out of Davis’ concern with the operation of space in visual imagery and her interest in writing which exhibits a distinctly visual component and draws on the heritage of the experiments started by Mallarmé.
As with most books the title is printed across the spine, but here a single letter in capitals is isolated on the spine of each of the seven volumes to spell out
(S – O – L – O – M – O – N). Isolated, each letter carries more power than the whole. The seven volumes explore language and space in the context of the Solomon Islands and combine certain aspects of concrete poetry with historical and contemporary images and texts.
In ‘S’ the subtitle (‘name’) establishes ‘naming’ space – ‘space’ as in creating an expanse for language to operate and ‘space’ as in naming of a space in order to possess it. The three ‘O’ books are interchangeable yet linked. ‘O’ (‘corpus’) is about head hunting, singing, indigenous spirituality and the absorption of Christianity. ‘O’ (‘eat’) draws on the coconut. It underlines the importance of the coconut and the palm tree in a pre-colonial, pre-diesel society. At the edge of the sea, stacked on their sides, rusted oil drums contrast with the blue of the water and sky. In bright yellow the letters C O C O appear on four of the lids and symbolise both ‘domination’ and ‘loss’; dominate/lost (culture), dominate/lost (language). SOLOMON was produced from photographs taken in the Solomon Islands, which have been digitally manipulated and printed on a bubble jet printer. Seven volumes housed in slipcase. Signed and numbered inside back page of ‘N’. Each volume 13.5 x 13.5 x 1.4 cm in box 14.6 x 13.8 x 9.5 cm. Published by the artist. Edition of 10 (this is last copy available).

Lessons in dictation
(2007)
The absurdity of the dictation test as proscribed in Section 3(a) of the Australian Immigration Restriction Act of 1901 is evident in the farce surrounding the 1934 Eugon Kisch incident. Kisch, a Czech national and a communist, was invited to speak at a meeting organized by The Movement Against War and Fascism. Wanting to prevent Kisch from entering the country, the Australian government of the day, ordered he undergo a dictation test in Scottish Gaelic, a language selected with the intention the multi-lingual Kisch would fail. He did. A deportation order was issued but the Supreme Court of Australia overturned this decision. Discussions in 2007 about reviving the dictation test to prove eligibility for Australian citizenship indicates Australia had not heeded this ‘lesson of history’. 12pp. 24.7 x 19.5 cm. Published for exhibition Lessons in History held at grahame galleries + editions March/April 2007. Signed and numbered in an edition of 100. numero uno publications, grahame galleries + editions.

Stamp out Democracy
(2012)
Used for official endorsements the humble rubber-stamp embodies power.
For just that reason rubber-stamps are employed in Stamp out Democracy. A minimum number of words ‘endorse’ the message that democracy is always vulnerable. Like all dangers, which begin small and are ignored, ‘stamp out’ grows in strength with each page until ‘democracy’ has been ‘stamped out’.
On the surface a light-hearted book commenting on the erosion of democratic rights. Below the surface, page-by-page, this light-heartedness is stamped out. 21.0 x 15.0cm. Published for exhibition Lessons in History Vol. II – Democracy held at grahame galleries + editions 2012. Signed and numbered.  Edition of 100. numero uno publications, grahame galleries + editions.

Jacks’ interest in the rubber stamp may have stemmed from his involvement with mail art. The rubber stamp also provided a drawing tool in his experimentations with minimalism. 
The first book in the set Twelve Red Grids was made in 1973 in New York where he had moved to in 1969. A further six were made in the USA and the last five in Australia. Right .. Left the twelfth book was produced in Sydney in 1982. Projected editions were 100 but Jacks continued to make and issue the twelve rubber-stamp books, so that actual editions are unknown.

Encore un effort (2012)
The centre pages carry the breathless descriptions of the new fashions for 1968, when anything goes and details place the accent on this or that part of the body and its adornment: a pair of shoes that have come off in a struggle, for example, the heel of one snapped off; a checked shirt, with two buttons undone; a light-coloured trench coat (perfect for a May day); a blouson-style jacket that allows easy freedom of movement; pale casual slacks worn with an ankle boot. The images are cropped from documents of violence, but attention is directed to sartorial details. Beauty is in the streets as fashion becomes democratic (or so say the houses of haute couture), while the philosopher of the boudoir extorts us once again. In the last image, to an assembled crowd of sensitive men and women, which petit-maître or dangerous man of principles would suggest that the only moral system to reinforce political revolution is that of libertinage, the revenge of nature’s course against the aberrations of society?
Cropped images from a set of photographs in the student paper ‘Tribune’ from May 68. Centre pages are a spread of text drawn from fashion magazines of the same period in French history, but including two slogans, one from 1968 and the other from 1795. Democratically printed in a reprographic unit. 22.5 x 15.5 cm. 24 pp. Edition of 100. Photographer Carl Warner.

In These Great Times (2015)
Constructivists, Futurists, de Stijl and the Abstract Expressionists’ schools ( & how rich were they in manifestos!)
Because something never comes from nothing, Lyssiotis sees In These Great Times as being a first cousin to two of his previous books More, More, More and The Ifs of Language. The title is a steal from a collection of essays by Karl Kraus, who was a satirist at one of the worst possible times to be a satirist: during the rise of Nazism in Europe.
In These Great Times presents questions such as,Will you sleep tonight?, What’s on line?, Business or Pleasure? The purpose of these questions is supposedly to inform but which create fear. The introduction contains his advice that we should not be afraid to confront these great questions. The caption to a photomontage of the artist/author claims that it is, ‘A photograph of the author at the exact spot where he first heard these questions.’
The book itself is printed in an edition of 11 with 3 artist’s proofs, on Mohawk Superfine paper 148 gsm. The pre-press work is by Frixos Ioannides. The yap binding is by Wayne Stock.

Out of Water (2017)
Fish in plastic water bottles is a recurring motif in the artist’s work. She first used them in an installation on the theme of water for an installation ‘All That We Have’ held at L’Abbaye de Tuffé, France, in 2015. Out of Water resonates with the major environmental issues explored in her work over the past thirty years. An original watercolour and ink drawing reproduced with inkjet and hand stamped lettering, each fish suspended on a fragile stem is a message in a bottle from a planet marooned in its own detritus. Paper/ used plastic water bottles/ stainless steel/ bronze. 80 x 36 x 8 cm. Unique.

Michael Phillips

The Democracy of Disease (2012)
The mystery of disease, the mystery of identity and place and time are combined in Phillips’ book. The pages have been made by two overprints on make-ready sheets in blue.
In the first overprint (purple) pathology slides documenting various diseases of the human urological system have been scanned and used for imagery commenting on the mystery of the democracy of disease. On each slide in a small neat hand is the patient’s name next to images of their failing organs and tissue.
The second overprint was made from negatives found in a tobacco tin at a London flea market. The identity of the people and places in the negatives and the decade they were made are a mystery. Did they document a holiday taken by two brothers and friends? somewhere in the Mediterranean? in the 1930s? (orange/brown) is used in this second overprint.
The overprints merge both mysteries on the pages. They are contained between plain white covers with title in black belying the richness of the images, which entice the viewer to enter into the mystery of the democracy of disease.

folded empires, series #1  (2015)
five hand-made books from found posters, folded and cut, hand-stitched,
variable number of pages, generally 30x12cms.
packed in a recycled computer keyboard box
books identified by cover image:
1. red square, number 8
2. double red square
3. yellow/orange double rectangle
4. red double triangle
5. red N/Z
A pile of abandoned CAT EMPIRE posters, colour-printed on one side of heavy paper, were stored under one of my beds for half a decade or more; kept in the hope that one day, I might make something out of them. In the end, some books emerged.
These came about through two working rules:
1. each poster sheet was folded three times, inaccurately to give displaced edges, and then hand stitched, but not cut open;
2. cuts and folds were then improvised in the folds to reveal the other sides of the sheet, and to establish relationships between opposing pages.
The cuts and folds become points of attention for the reader/viewer: an experience of discovery and revealed logic. Of course there is an occasional letter or word that intrudes, but I did take care not to just show what was actually printed on the poster. Unique.

under the ac
t
(2007)
Judy Watson has drawn on letters, papers and official documents found in the Queensland State Archives, as well as personal family photographs as a base for under the act. The documents from the archives pertain to her great-grandmother and grandmother who lived under the Aboriginal Protection and Restriction of Sale of Opium Acts of 1897. The documents also reveal the categories, “full blood”, “half-cast”, “quadroon”, “octoroon”, ascribed to Aboriginal people of the day.
One document from the archive, which Watson used, is her great grandmother’s ‘exemption card’. These cards allowed holders to live and work outside the reservations. They were called ‘dog tags’ by their holders, as they were obliged to carry them on their person at all times. Also included are letters of objection from various parties to authorities at the time Watson’s Aboriginal grandmother and white grandfather were seeking permission to marry.
Using etching, lithographic techniques, silkscreen and stamping this work makes a powerful statement about life for all Aboriginal people who lived Under the Act.

Posted (2009)
Each month over 10 months from October 2007 to July 2008 Wight made a postcard in an edition of 40, which she posted to a ‘select few’ including family members and friends in Australia and overseas. The project, ‘then and there 1937 – 1946’, was based on photographs of the Wight family from this period – a period full of upheaval for many Australian families.
In 2009 Wight further developed the project to make her artist book Posted. The title is a reference to those family photographs, which Wight’s mother had posted to her sister living on the opposite side of Australia. It also references the various ‘postings’ of the artist’s father, who served with the RAAF in WWII. Bound by Fred Pohlmann. Concertina format. 19.0 x 19.5cm. Edition of 10.
