Printer in Residence 2018: Wendy Murray / by Wendy Murray


SUPER excited to announce that I have been awarded the University of Sydney Library’s inaugural Printer in Residence publication scholarship.

During my 8-week residency at the Piscator Press, I will use letterpress and digital printing processes to produce an edition of 80 copies of Sydney – we need to talk, a collection of short, accessible explorations of the politics of urbanisation. Authored by a multi-disciplinary team of University of Sydney scholars, the book will be launched as part of the 5th Festival of Urbanism in September 2018. As well as using the Library’s Albion presses and type collections, Wendy’s design will draw upon the historic publications of the Piscator Press that are now held in Rare Books & Special Collections, a display of which will be installed in the Library in the coming weeks....visit the Sydney University Library
