You are a book lover. You may be an avid reader, or an author. An editor, or a bookseller.

About the Book is a festival celebrating all aspects of the book. We embrace all books, old and new, in whatever form they take .

About the Book is about:

– those who author, design and publish them
– those who sell, deal, and distribute them
– those who read, collect and repurpose them
We embrace any style and form of the book: graphic, comic, picture, text, fold out, grimoires or whatever manifestation the book happens to take, in both traditional and new media, embracing and celebrating what has happened in the past, while anticipating the future.

Our first event will take place on Saturday, 11th March 2017 in Merimbula, on the far south coast of NSW.  We hope you’ll join us. Please use our Contact form to register your interest in About the Book.
