AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'If ever a magazine was a victim of its success, it was the Australian Woman's Mirror. Having started out as the Bulletin's little sister, it was so popular by 1960 that Frank Packer bought it in order to kill it and clear the market for his Australian Women's Weekly. He acquired the struggling Bulletin as part of the package. When the Mirror appears as a footnote to the legend of its older brother, we get no sense of what the magazine achieved or how important it was to readers and contributors.' (Introduction)

    'In a phone call followed by several conversations and a string of other phone calls, John Clarke slowly explained to me the concept of the Commonplace Book. Not a diary. Not a journal. Jottings and observations; little notes on the subtle specialness of life. Several emails followed with various jotted musings attached.' (Editorial introduction)
