The Melbourne bindery worked on the limited edition Art of Bradman, which picked up two silver awards at the National Print Awards in May, but the A3+ book on display was stolen during the evening’s presentations in the Solander box that it was stored in.

The company is offering the reward for confidential information leading to the recovery of the book and/or prosecution of the thief. “The two items must have been packed and carried from the premises under full view of many in attendance. Someone must know what happened,” says Edward Congdon, owner and managing director at Whites Law Bindery.

Scott Telfer, chairman of the National Print Awards, has expressed his concern over the incident but claims the board has its hands tied as to taking the investigation any further at this stage.

“We have given it to the NSW Police Department to investigate,” says Telfer. “Under privacy laws we are not allowed to view any of the security footage that was taken at Darling Harbour during the evening, but if anyone has any information relating to the theft then we would encourage them to come forward.”
