More About this Item


Description:

[Angry Penguins #9] HARRIS, Max and John REED (editors): Angry Penguins. July 1946 [cover title].

[Melbourne], Printed by the National Press, 1946. Quarto, 64 pages with 13 illustrations (mainly portraits from photographs, but including reproductions of 4 paintings by Eric Lee-Johnston). Monochrome pictorial wrappers lightly creased and marked; tiny tear to the leading margin of the first ten leaves expertly sealed; an excellent copy.

Notes:

The editorial notes that, with the end of the war and the easing of certain wartime publishing restrictions from March 1946, hopefully the journal 'will appear at fairly regular quarterly intervals'. However, a certain amount of inevitable disillusionment had settled over the Australian cultural scene, interest in modern painting and literature had waned and 'some literary journals are feeling the strain of these adverse conditions'. Some journals were finding sales dropping alarmingly, others were being forced off the market. 'At the moment we can luckily claim a rising circulation both here and in America'. Be that as it may, this was the last issue of 'Angry Penguins', and looking at the list of contents, both artistic and literary, it is perhaps hardly surprising.
