Collecting Australian Internment Ephemera
Melbourne Rare Book Week
Edwin’s collecting interests include the impact of the world wars in Australia. The records of internees are diverse, often not in English, and from all parts of the country. They reflect the skills of the internees as well as their ordinary day to day needs, such as setting up cafés and barber shops. His collection includes rare camp newspapers, postcards, artworks and linguistic aids.
