Presented by Melbourne Writers Festival

Great Hall
Ground Level

Free entry

In 2012 digital literature pioneers if:book took a book from concept to print within a single 24 hour period. Willow Patterns: The Complete 24-Hour Book reproduces a database of every saved version of the work-in-progress as lavish hardcover art books across 28 volumes. During this special event Lisa Dempster (Melbourne Writers Festival) and Simon Groth (if:book) will examine the 24 Hour Book project and how digital is changing the future of books, from how artists and writers create books to the way readers interact with them.
