List of items held at NCACL

The National Centre is an independent not-for-profit body run by volunteer specialists.  It collects, preserves and shares the works of Australian children’s book writers and illustrators.  Along with finished books, the National Centre also holds manuscripts, papers, artworks and correspondence that show the creative process behind many of our nation’s most beloved children’s stories.  Throughout these materials, the researcher gains a behind-the-scenes look at the struggles, inner workings, successes and failures, and collaborations between authors, illustrators, publishers and book designers.
