OUT OF PRINT
From 2013 – 2014, if:book conducted the Memory Makes Us live writing event at writers festivals in Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne and Perth.
Twelve writers created new work live, using as their inspiration the memories contributed by the audience.
The writing that emerged is beautiful, funny, sad, and surreal.
Creating a print edition of the project presented us with a challenge. Like all memories, the pieces that make up Memory Makes Us are ephemeral and must eventually fade away.
So, Memory Makes Us is published to newsprint with extraordinary design by Zoë Sadokierski, Gemma Warriner, and Alissa Dinallo.
