In 2011, UTS Library purchased a special collection of material relating to the Australian artist, writer and sculptor Norman Lindsay. The Collection of over 700 items was formed by the cartoonist and television broadcaster James Kemsley. The Collection consists of printed material - mostly books, some journals, ephemera, original illustrations, the partial manuscript of an unpublished novel by Lindsay and some original letters - dating from 1858 to 2006.
Of interest to historians and researchers in the social sciences and visual communication fields, the Norman Lindsay Collection contains books by and about Norman Lindsay, his extended artistic family including his brother Lionel and his literary son Jack, and the artistic milieu in which they moved.
The Library warmly invites you to the launch of this collection, please see the attached invitation.
