What if? Stadium of Dunedin… features in Special Collections de Beer Gallery exhibition

Snippets from exhibition cabinets:

“The short unbound or loosely bound publications we know as pamphlets (less than 48 pages) suit topical subjects, especially if they smack of propaganda and the polemic.”

“Hocken was very good at clumping like-pamphlets together, often centred on themes such as ‘Old New Zealand’, ‘Botany’ or ‘Travel’. Later volumes are arranged more randomly and were not bound under his direction.”

From exhibition catalogue:

VITRINES
1. A selection of blog sites: the modern-day pamphlets?
2. A selection of pamphlets from the Hunter Pamphlet Collection, Hocken Library.
