MONDAY 3 JULY, 10AM What will the rare book of the future look like? Digitally published books
Presented by Ephemera Society of Australia by ESA member Mimmo Cozzolino.
In 2012 Mimmo designed and published 9 illustrated books for a master of fine art project titled: “After I die. Archives, Autobiography, Photography”. The books were printed digitally in quantities of 5 to 12. One set resides in the State Library of Victoria’s Rare Books collection. In this presentation he will briefly show the books, then explore if this type of book might become a rare book of the future. Mimmo is an Italian born Australian visual artist, and co-author of Symbols of Australia (Penguin 1980).
When: Monday 3 July, 10-11am.
Where: Royal Historical Society of Victoria, 239 A’Beckett Street, Melbourne.
