Because of war-time restrictions, Angry Penguins
(without a periodical licence) could only be published annually. As an alternative, the Angry Penguins Broadsheet
appeared for ten issues during 1946, edited by Max Harris, James McGuire and Sidney Nolan. The Angry Penguins Broadsheet
published work by foreign authors such as Dylan Thomas, Henry Miller and Jean-Paul Sartre, asserting the same international focus that appeared in the annual. Supporting the avant garde
modernist stance of Angry Penguins
, the aim of the broadsheet was strongly stated in the first issue: 'It is . . . the function of this broadsheet to attack bad art on the one hand and to attack those debased values in the community which demand and perpetuate bad art.' To achieve this aim, each issue contained reviews of books, theatre, cinema, visual arts and music sometimes gathered under the title 'The Critical Eye'. The selections of poetry were dominated by overseas authors, but Harris and McGuire made several contributions. When war-time restrictions were lifted on 1 March 1946, Angry Penguins
was to appear quarterly, but the July issue of 1946 was the last. The Angry Penguins Broadsheet
also faltered, ending its run in December 1946 (this issue edited by Harris and Harry Roskolenko) after issues failed to appear in October and November.
