The Milk Bars Book
The Milk Bars Book is a project by our dear friend, artist, illustrator, and photographer Eamon Donnelly.
15 years in the making, this richly nostalgic, colourfully illustrated 400-page coffee table book celebrates an iconic Australian institution—the milk bar.
The book pays homage to milk bars all over Australia with more than 600 images of shopfronts, faded facades, peeling signage and inviting interiors. It showcases family photographs, archival imagery, nostalgic graphics and adverts dating back to the 1930s. It also includes the milk bar our creative director Mirella Marie grew up in.
The project is now up on Kickstarter and needs your help to reach its goal.
