Outside the Main Stream
19 October 2000 - 28 February 2001
All Rare Book Collections have holdings of limited-edition, private
press books. Here at Monash University we have a long-standing interest
in this field. The "History of the Book" has always been one of our
areas of teaching and research. We have our Centre for the Book, and we
also have the Ancora Press where hand-printing is carried on under the
tutelage of Dr. Brian McMullin.
Dr. McMullin has chosen widely from the items in the Monash
University Library Rare Book Collection to demonstrate the beauty of
type-faces, and the role of book design in private press publishing.
