A Collectable about Collecting
The ESA has always produced its own well designed ephemera. And in this regard has benefited from the efforts of eminent Melbourne designers (including Mimmo Cozzolino, Phil Ellett, Natasha Dumais, Andrew Budge, et al.) and design students from Swinburne University.
Ephemera News was the ESA member newsletter published from 1987 – 2015, issues 1 – 51.
A collectable in its own right, Ephemera News was created in a myriad of formats and styles including folded as a napkin, with an individually applied wine stain, printed on a paper bag and in the shape of a 45 record. It featured an eclectic mix of research articles and information.
Ephemera News ceased production in 2015 after the publication of #50. (Which followed publication of #51 in 2011.)
Ephemera News was superseded by the Ephemera Journal of Australia which was launched in May 2015.
