'The National Library's major public contribution to the Australian Bicentenary is the travelling exhibition, People, Print & Paper. Celebrating two hundred years of Australian books, this exhibition and the accompanying catalogue bring together a collection of books which gives a fascinating insight into an aspect of Australian life and character which is often overlooked. Australia is a culture of the book, and the story of its writers, printers, book-sellers and publishers is an important microcosm of the country's past and present.'
