Physical Description

Folded paper with colour illustrations


These objects demonstrate the intersection between technology, marketing and popular tastes through the case study of the paint industry. They are powerful signifiers of changes in Australian domestic architectural practice over time. The objects and paper based ephemera offer unique evidence of advertising practice, popular architecture and home decoration from the 1920s through to the 1970s. The material offers tangible evidence of changes in Australian marketing and in home decoration.
