Creating Designer Books

The RMIT Design Archives is a unique repository of Melbourne design practice. This session will focus on two publishing collectives, established in the 1970s in Prahran: Backyard Press, a commercial venture and Champion Books, an experimental publishing house. Marius Foley joined Backyard Press shortly after its establishment by Ted Hopkins, Sharon Hill and Paul Greene in 1976. In this session he will share his insights into this collaborative and experimental publishing workplace. There will be the opportunity to view the original publications in the Archives’ collection.
