Publishing files or archives in public institutions are extremely rare with five held across Australia. Two of these are of children’s publishers and both are held at the NCACL. The Walter McVitty Books archive and the Omnibus archive.
These files reveal much about cultural products and their times and provide unique perspectives from publisher, author and illustrator. They show how authors, illustrators and manuscripts are chosen.
Publishers’ files are ordered alphabetically by last name:
Ingram, Anne Bower
Ker Wilson, Barbara
Toft, Kim Michelle
