To celebrate the occasion of Heimo Zobernig's 15 year survey of his Australian works, the artist has collaborated on the production of a limited edition artist's book of lyrics by Brisbane singer-songwriter Robert Forster.

Edited by David Pestorius, the book is the first devoted to Forster's lyrics and includes more than 50 songs from all phases of his now four-decade long career with The Go-Betweens (1978–1989; 2000–2006) and as a solo artist (1990–1999; 2006–).

The selected songs are grouped thematically under headings (eg. 'Colour', 'Desire', 'Divide', 'Conquer', 'Contempt', 'Place', 'Point of View', to cite just some), which serve to enhance the often oblique nature and interpretative potential of Forster's lyrics.

The book adopts a rough truth-to-materials approach, with the typography and layouts from original album sleeves and CD booklets redeployed where possible. The book also includes a brief biographical entry, a discography, and a small selection of illustrations that constitute a parallel narrative, which points up Forster's historical engagement with artists and the world of art.

Lyrics of Robert Forster is published by KANN-Verlag, Frankfurt, 2015, 21 x 14.7 cm, b&w, 140 pages, perfect bound, with offset printed cover by Heimo Zobernig, in a limited edition of 120 copies.
