Ephemera Society of Australia
The Ephemera Society of Australia is a longstanding association of individuals bound by their personal and professional passion for collecting ephemera.
ESA was formally established in August 1987 to unite collectors in Australia.
It came about through the efforts of a visiting museum curator, Honor Godfrey, who was an organiser and member of the English Society. Honor was a paper bag collector. She was an inspirational leader and in Melbourne in late 1986, she gathered together a small group to investigate interest in setting up a society here for collectors.
The first meeting was attended by Andy McGuigan, Colin Duggan and Murray Walker. (Murray was the innovative curator of two great recent exhibitions, Colonial crafts of Victoria at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1979 and more importantly The Great SIO exhibition at the Museum of Victoria in 1985 (a sesqui-centenary exhibition for Victoria). A month later as momentum grew, Mimmo Cozzolino, designer and author of Symbols of Australia (1980) joined the group.
Benefits of membership - 2 journals and 2 newsletters each year; early bird access to the fair; the joy of being part of a society of collectors.
