The New Australian Bookplate Society, founded in Sydney, Australia, on October, 2006, launched its website. The society published a quarterly Newsletter for its members and some can be read on-line.
Our warm welcome to the New Australian Bookplate Society and to Prof. Dr. Mark Ferson its elected President.
This is the second bookplate society to be founded in Australia in recent years. The other is the Australian Bookplate Society, founded in Victoria, and a member of FISAE.
Australia had in the past century a very rich bookplate tradition namely through The Ex Libris Society of Australia (1922 - 1942). After a long period of eclipse, like it happened in many other countries, we are but happy to see that the flag is flying again.
