The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum has launched a new digital exhibition based on our 2017 exhibit, Tales from the Vault: 40 Years / 40 Stories, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of our founding.

We have chosen 40 stories from the many that could be told through our collections: stories about the cartoons and comics themselves, the artists and writers who created them, the people who collected them and their impact on the audience that read them.

Featuring work by Garry Trudeau, Rose O'Neill, Osamu Tezuka, Brumsic Brandon Jr., and more.

This digital exhibition is based on a physical exhibition created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum and displayed in the Robinson Gallery from March 25, 2017 – October 22, 2017.

The exhibition was curated by Caitlin McGurk and Jenny Robb with assistance from Amy Chalmers.
