Manly Library is to host of an exhibition of handmade ‘artists’ books’ and ‘zines’ on fairy tale themes, titled ‘Happily Ever After: alternative destinies in contemporary feminist narrative’

(3 December 2011 – 29 January 2012 at Manly Library, Market Lane, Manly).

The touring exhibition, curated by Newcastle artists Caelli Jo Booker and Helen Hopcroft, brings together over seventy national and international artists and writers who have created new versions of traditional fairy tales in the form of handmade ‘artists’ books’ and ‘zines’.

This exhibition is at its third venue and will travel possibly further south and maybe overseas in 2012.
