Conquilt is a record of nearly one hundred of the attending authors, editors, publishers and illustrators to Aussiecon 4, the 68th World Science Fiction Convention held in Melbourne Australia in September 2010.
Signatures were collected throughout the convention and assembled into this colourful quilt perfect for display – perhaps in your library?
Conquilt will be on display throughout Continuum 7. There will be an auction launch at 8.45pm on Friday 10 June in the Earth Room. Come and see it for yourself! The auction is now live on ebay - it will end on 20 June.
This is your chance to own a unique collection of signatures that record a moment in sci-fi and fantasy history. Featuring some of the biggest names in the industry, up-and-coming writers, and including many award winners, it could never be repeated.
