Fragments of the Everyday: A Book of A/Stone, Richard/Paper/0642276013/S019-G
National Library of Australia
Remember when a week at the Surfers Paradise El Dorado Hotel was the ultimate holiday for sun-worshippers? Or when taking a road trip with the new caravan was the only way to see Australia? Items of ephemera have a special capacity to jog those memories of time past: the menu from a sumptuous anniversary dinner, your ticket to an AFL football final or the program form the opening night of Cats.
Richard Stone has drawn on his extensive knowledge of the National Library of Australia's treasure trove of ephemera to compile this fascinating visual journey. Whether designed to inform, persuade or shock, these remarkable 'reminders', beautifully reproduced, are a fascinating record of Australian life over the last 150 years.
