SOOB Library is a project we hope will continue long after SOOB 2006, and will become part of the fabric of the Brisbane writing scene. We simply ask everyone to bring along an old book they have loved reading and would like to share with others, or to come and choose a book from our library. SOOB will stamp the book with our library stamp so that we know it is part of our collection. The books you contribute and the books already in our collection will be on the SOOB Library shelves at Jugglers Art Space for the duration of the SOOB visual arts exhibition. Come in, choose a book, write your name in the front and when you’ve finished reading it drop it at one of the SOOB Library branches. Keep picking up or adding new books to our library at one of the many branches – each time you read one be sure to put your name in the front, then the book will contain another story about those who have read it. If you’d like to create a book club with others who have read the book write your email address in the front too!

Rectangular Words is a photographic display of Brisbane words that we all pass by each day, but perhaps do not notice or see view poetically. Jerry has photographed graffiti, bus poetry, cemented sentences, public art signs, stencil art and other words around Brisbane. Together these photographs create a Brisbane story, with the wider populace adding the sentences to complete the story.
