Modernism is bliss

The State Library of New South Wales have done a rather lovely job of digitising and presenting items from their Harry Seidler collection. A particular highlight for me is being able to leaf through a 1951 issue of Australian Home Beautiful.

Best of all, it looks like they intend to keep adding extra material over time. It would be fantastic to see the work of some New Zealand architects (or NZ-resident: the Plischke show a few years back would have lent itself magnificently to this kind of treatment) delivered in this holistic manner.

Thanks W
