About the Fringe publishing blog

At the National Library we collect much more than just traditional books and magazines. They’re only one part of our “Australian story”. The Fringe Publishing blog will highlight some of the more unusual items we hold. Comics, posters, ephemera, objects, alternative press and hand published material like artist’s books and zines as well as some of the quirkier books. We will show you what we collect and why we do it, how we house it and manage it, and some of the interesting stories behind the items. We hope we can surprise and entice you!
