Before you bind your thesis, a few words on why it matters:
In the early 1800s Michael Faraday as a teen apprentice bookbinder attended nightly scientific lectures at the Royal Society in London. He wanted to be a scientist. He attended one set of lectures by Sir Humphry Davy and as a tribute, annotated and elaborately marbled and bound them in leather. He then sent the 300 page volume to Sir Humphry.
Sir Humphry was impressed and remembered Faraday, and one day offered him a position as an assistant. Farady went on to discover electricity and the electric motor. The book is still on exhibition in London. Obviously this was a situation where presentation made all the difference. We aim to give you something to hold and to feel proud of. Something that you have not only written, but that will encourage others to open and admire, and to remember.
It is also becoming an increasing source of concern amongst those that are informed that modern electronic digital files are not archival, and might not even be accessible in under 50 years time. Lets hope that Australian institutions reappraise their values like they have in Europe.
