The Autograph Collection

Brisbane City Council libraries are offering avid readers the opportunity to view autographed copies of their favourite book titles with the travelling exhibition, The Autograph Collection.

The Autograph Collection is a collection of famous and popular book titles, each personally signed by the book's author. The collection includes 33 displays, with each display featuring one or two books. Each book has been selected based on the popularity and success of the title and its author. The titles span many genres and most copies are one of the first editions of the title to be published.

The Autograph Collection will rotate through Council's libraries until June 2018. View the schedule below to find out what display is currently showing in a library near you.
