I love monographs and art in books, how about you? Premiering at State Library Victoria, Inspired by Design is a free exhibition that showcases some of the world’s finest book art, graphics, photography and illustration.
From London’s acclaimed Victoria and Albert Museum, the exhibition celebrates 150 years of collecting by the National Art Library. Immerse yourself in the book beautiful, from historic illustrated manuscripts and rare artists’ books to modern graphic design and fashion photography.
See over 100 treasures including original hand-drawn illustrations from Beatrix Potter, a Pablo Picasso artist book, fashion sketches from Dior and Comme des Garçons, rare medieval manuscripts and much more.
We can check out the exhibition and grab a coffee/wine/beer afterwards.
