Congratulations to David Frazer, who is launching his new artist book in collaboration with musician Tom Waits, More than Flesh and Bone, at the Melbourne Art Book Fair.

This handmade artist book is presented as part of his current exhibition For the Love of Song at Castlemaine Art Museum. It interprets the songs The Last Rose of SummerTake It With Me and The Briar and the Rose by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan.

David Frazer’s exhibition is a passionate and unique collaboration between the renowned Castlemaine-based artist and some of the most iconic songwriters of a generation including Paul Kelly (AUS); Don Walker (AUS); Nick Cave (AUS/UK); Nick Lowe (UK) and Tom Waits (USA). Frazer’s most recent collaboration with Tom Waits is a world premiere.

This is a unique opportunity to celebrate David Frazer’s latest artist book and hear from the artist, alongside a live musical performance in the gallery.
