Virtual Musuem: Books & Publications

Back in 2014 we undertook a public poll of 25 potential online exhibitions that could be added to our Virtual Museum: to be known and distinguished as Carnamah. We've kept the results a secret as we always intended to develop both the top voted themes but also those that received the least votes!

The rationale of this was to give the majority of people what they wanted but to also challenge ourselves to create an engaging exhibition that people voted not to see! Which will prove most popular in the end? We'll have to wait and see!

We'd like to draw your attention to the first of our four new online exhibitions on Books & Publications, which takes a lighthearted look at some of the books and other publications that can be found on the shelves at our museum. We've got nursery rhymes, awful recipes, wearable books and much more!

We'd like to thank the Department of Culture and the Arts (DCA) for supporting this project to share and promote more of our museum collection with the broader community. Before we go, we'll share one of the images that didn't quite make the final cut. It shows the fashions of 1979 and is a cover of the Australian Woman's World magazine.
