COVID-19 update: State Library is gradually reopening and more spaces are now available. Check what’s open before you visit.
Experience the robins, curlews and egrets nesting in our Australian Library of Art collection showcase about birds, flight and their seasonal migration patterns.
The 19 artists' books on display highlight the fascinating beauty of birds and their relationship with the world around them.
The showcase features the artists' book Overwintering, a collaborative project where artists were invited to map a personal response to the richness of their local shorebird habitat. Measuring over 900cm, this artists' book features original prints by 32 artists, including 15 artists from Queensland.
