Double Bush Binding

“Double Bush Binding”, organized by BEA (Bookbinding Exhibitions Australia Inc.), is to feature novels written by Paul Wenz. This exhibition consists of two parts: showing unbound books of these texts written in English and French and printed on handmade papers with etchings by Daniel Pata, Michael Kempson and Rew Hanks, and fine bindings of the texts.

Over 100 bookbinders from 9 countries (Australia, France, Japan, New Zealand, U.S.A., Canada, Estonia, Netherlands, Belgium) participated in this project.

In Japan, this international exhibition is to show these two parts with one additional part “odor of soil” as related theme to “bush”. This part exhibits Aboriginal handmade papers, Australian literature, and Australian culture concerning books.

Geographically speaking, neither Australia nor Japan is near its originated place, Europe.
By looking at bound books from different countries, we will hear voices from each binders, and from the earth…
