Last year we worked with Fiona MacDonald to produce a gorgeous set of offset lithographic prints exploring the history of the Green Bans in Sydney.

Fiona has adapted some of these prints into a very limited edition artists book, which is on show right now at Grahame Galleries + Editions.

The book is called “Practical Democracy: A Jazz Send-Off”.
The exhibition is called “lessons in history vol. ii – democracy 2″

About the work:

Concertina format made from cut down sections of print proofs made at the Big Fag Press, Woolloomooloo, about the Green Bans of the early 1970s as part of a 40th anniversary project. The proofs had used both sides of the paper as the edition was prepared and this seemed like a perfect opportunity to turn the two sides proofs into a book. Box board covers, concertina pages printed offset on Dutch etching paper. Text Geotype. 30.0 x 21.0 cm. Edition of 2.
