Part of the Librarium collection, in which we decided to indulge our love of the State Library of Victoria and its Pictures collection. We delved through the archives and selected images to collage, mix up, squish, colourise and generally mess with to create our prints.
The 1880 print was created from: A photograph of the South Australian Court from the 1880 exhibition at the Royal Exhibition Building.
A drawing of Tasmanian Tigers, circa 1900-40 (labelled as Tas. Marsupial Wolf!)
A drawing of a kookaburra by John Gould.
A photograph of the HMAS Sydney, berthed at Williamstown.
A photograph of the MacRobertson display at an exhibition at the Royal Exhibition Building.
A photograph by Daniel McDonald of the Town Hall organ circa 1870
A photograph of RAAF air pageants.
A photograph of a tiger from the Royal Zoological Gardens in Melbourne.
