Ampersand Duck: "I have been producing small publications since graduating from art school in 2002. I am currently undertaking a creative PhD at UC, working collaboratively with poets as a designer/printer/small publisher to tease out the intersections of artist's book and poetry publishing.

I use really old technologies like letterpress and old/new technologies like laserprinters and photocopiers, mixing them up a bit because the point isn't the result, it's the process of getting to the result. I'll be selling a mix of chapbooks, artists' books and zines, showing new work and hopefully clearing out some old stock at good prices." Find out more here.

Nola Farman: "My book works represent an enduring interest of mine, which dates from my earliest memories.

The books are simply bound, and published in limited editions of 20-40, under my own imprimatur, The Garden Path Press. They have been collected by the National Library of Australia; the Bibliotheque National, Paris; the Baltic Centre, Gateshead, UK; the Winchester School of Art; the University of the West of England; Yale University, NY; MOMA Library, NY; the National Library, Ottawa, Canada; Artexte, Montréal, Canada; AGNSW Library; Te Papa National Gallery, NZ and international private collections."
