Siganto Foundation Artists' Book Project

The Australian Library of Art (ALA) is an internationally renowned collection and research resource for artists, writers, designers, bookbinders, collectors, historians and botanists. For five years from 2012 to 2017, The Siganto Foundation supported the ALA to host workshops, fellowships, lectures and seminars to advance the awareness of this collection and enable creativity to thrive through the form of artists’ books. As a result, each of the ten fellowships used State Library collections to produce an artist book or research the artists’ book genre for the ALA.

This showcase celebrates the beauty of those creations and research The Siganto Foundation support has enabled.
