Summary

Colour lithographic poster promoting a free preview exhibition for the new state-of-the-art Treasures Gallery and new Exhibition Gallery, which will open in late 2010. This exhibition features over 80 of the Library’s prized items and gives an insight into what will be on display in the new Treasures Gallery in 2011. Featured are items collected over the past 100 years, and while significant moments in Australian history are highlighted by treasures in the exhibition, it also includes an ‘NLA to Z’ of international items. The poster background is white, with the main image being a composite of two pictures from the NLA Pictures Collection. The poster caption in white text runs across the centre join line of the two images.
