Congratulations to Manon van Kouswijk with designers Stuart Geddes and Ziga Testen, whose book Making Faces: a jewellery playbook, featured as part of Manon’s exhibition here last November, is shortlisted for the Cornish Family Prize for Art and Design Publishing.

An initiative of the NGV and supported by philanthropists Caroline and Philip Cornish, the annual prize is the most significant of its kind, recognising publishing as a critical creative practice. $15,000 is awarded to the winning book, with additional $1,000 prizes for up to four finalists. Winners will be announced at Melbourne Art Book Fair 2019, which runs as part of Melbourne Design Week, March 14-24.

Perimeter Books is hosting an official launch of Making Faces: a jewellery playbook on Saturday 9 March, 4-6pm at their store: 743 High St Thornbury, 3071. The launch will be accompanied by an informal conversation about the making of the publication. Contact Perimeter Books for more information.
