NEW Print Australia
To co-incide with the Impact7 printmaking conference in Melbourne later this year the Print Australia website is being relaunched. The new site will contain a selection of the best content from the old website on Acay, the Yahoo Groups site and the Bellebyrd blog. It also contains a blog for Print Australia's ongoing activities.

They include the Solstice Exchange (2002) SSNW03 (2003) SSNW04 (2004) Lyrebyrd Miniprint #4 (2005) and Lyrebyrd Miniprint #5 (2006)
