No. 10 (series 1) in a monograph series devoted to the subject of book and print culture under the editorial direction of the Codex Publications Advisory Board. From the title page verso: "500 copies were designed & printed by Peter Rutledge Koch with the assistance of Jonathan Gerken and Dina Pollack." From the Code(x) website: "Australian artist and book collector Monica Oppen is the curator of her own private library of artist's books. To quote the website: 'The Bibliotheca Librorum apud Artificem is a private collection of books made by printmakers, photographers, photomonteurs, painters, writers and poets. The collection's focus is on books made in Australia but also has works from overseas. Books of interest are actively sought and purchased. The Bibliotheca is in the Sydney suburb of Stanmore. It is held at a private house and may be viewed by appointment. Students are welcome.' This is not a Cathedral is a close up view of this unique collection from the founding ideals to the curatorial practice."
