Call-out to emerging Graphic Designers for Book Machine II in Sydney

BOOK MACHINE, an initiative of Onestar Press, Paris is returning to Artspace, Sydney for VOLUME 2017 | Another Art Book Fair!

BOOK MACHINE connects emerging graphic designers and public participants through the creation of one-off artist books. This is a unique opportunity to work with an esteemed international press to realise the key public program of VOLUME 2017 | Another Art Book Fair, which will bring together over 70 national and international exhibitors over a week in October. We are seeking creative and friendly volunteers who enjoy working collaboratively to realise the design and production of artist books. Twenty designers are required for each of the 3.5 hour BOOK MACHINE sessions between Tuesday 10 and Sunday 15 October — you may work at as many or as few sessions as you’d like.

You’ll be paired with a public participant for each session. Participants will arrive prepared with images and text which you’ll help them shape into a book using a pre-designed 100–page book template. Designers will be offered a complimentary copy of each collaborative book — which you’ll receive the day after each session! That means you could add as many as nine books to your personal collection and portfolio.
