A set of Halsbury’s Statutes was rescued from being pulped when The Sidney Nolan Trust invited book artists to take a volume each to create an artistic work. Each artist studied the content of their volume and made an artist’s book. The result was an exhibition, Re-imagining the Laws of England and Wales, that explores issues of law, order and liberty, celebrating 800 years of Magna Carta.

THE STORY OF BOOKS where stories are told and books are made The Story of Books is developing plans for the first working museum dedicated to all aspects of books. The project is led by creative entrepreneur, Emma Balch. The Story of Books will have a permanent, physical HQ at Baskerville Hall near Hay-on-Wye. The Story of Books is also creating a series of collaborative and inclusive experiences – exhibitions, events, tours, digital projects and curated spaces – around the globe.
