Welcome to Codex Australia
Codex Australia is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the traditional arts and crafts of the hand-made book, as well as the latest print technologies, imaging sciences, and contemporary art and design. Based in Melbourne, Australia, it aims to serve the interests of book makers, their books, and the people who love them in Australia and New Zealand.
Codex Australia was recently established under the leadership of award-winning book maker Alan Loney, the proprietor of Electio Editions. Board members Susan Millard, Miriam Morris, Alexander Selenitsch and Victor Griss and regional representatives throughout Australia and New Zealand welcome you to this website.
- Our constituency consists of professional and amateur artisans, educators, publishers, libraries, art galleries, artists, writers, and scholars who have an interest in the art of the book. Codex Australiais an Affiliate Member of THE CODEX FOUNDATION in Berkeley, California.
- As a non-profit organisation with volunteer staff and helpers, we must rely on sales of our publications and donations for the successful achievement of our program. Your contributions will support the biennial Codex Exhibition and Symposium, annual public lecture, handmade book awards and publishing program, as well as promoting Australian handmade books in local and international contexts.
- Partnerships are open to individuals, companies and institutions who wish to join with Codex Australia as a Partner in specific events, exhibitions, publications or other events independently of the Sponsorships outlined above. There are no fixed requirements for the Partnerships, and each Partnership would be managed in its own terms. For further discussion, please write to the Secretary, Codex Australia, 6/47 Grant Street, Malvern East, VIC 3145.
- Codex Australia seeks to work in conjunction with other bibliophilic and book arts organisations to support public programs and other initiatives in the field of the book arts within Australia and between Australia and the international community.
