Author(s): Jadwiga Jarvis
Edition Limited to 500 copies.
The Waygoose Afair is a unique and totally fascinating story of one of Australia's most remarkable private presses whose books have been collected, exhibited and admired locally and overseas for over two decades.
The characters and protagonists are marvellously presented, both directly and indirectly. One can see and hear them as they sit long into the night, working at the press or engrossed in a passionate debate about books, art, politics, and the politics of book arts. The author's liberal use of quotes from her correspondence with other printers, artists, librarians, booksellers, enthusiasts and occasional detractors adds considerably to the interest, especially as those quoted are such fascinating people.
