Event description

Description

Learn the hidden story of Cecily Crozier, a literary editor who co-founded A comment, Melbourne’s first avant-garde literary magazine. Both the magazine and Cecily’s life express the daring bohemian spirit of the time.

A comment was launched one month before its better known contemporary, Angry Penguins, and published many of the same contributors, including Max Harris.

You’ll visit the World of the book exhibition to learn about Crozier, who has been overlooked in most accounts of Australian modernism, and A comment, the visual identity of which was distinguished by the bold linocuts designed by Crozier’s cousin (and briefly husband), Irvine Green.
