the codex events at QCA were initiated in 2011 with codex event 8. Each event is collaborative in nature and aims to produce either a series of artists books or an editioned artists book. The nature of each event is shaped by the invited participants who are asked to investigate the relationship between three fundamental elements of Print Culture; papermaking, printmaking and the book. The events were initiated in 2004 by Tim Mosely while at Southern Cross University.

codex event 8 involved a collaboration between, Sarah Bodman, Paul Laidler and Tom Snowden from the Centre for Fine Print Research, UWE, UK,  Monica Oppen from the Bibliotheca Librorum apud Artificem, Sydney and Tim Mosely from the Griffith Centre for Creative Arts Research. The five books produced from codex event 8 (illustrated above) are held by the Bibliotheca Librorum apud Artificem
