‘out of the box’: Lionel Lindsay Library 

The Lionel Lindsay Art Gallery and Library was established by W.R.F. (Bill) and Marion Bolton in Toowoomba in 1959. Writing to Lionel Lindsay himself in 1957, Bill Bolton had justly predicted that the library collection ‘will be something absolutely out of the box’ – meaning something excellent and outstanding. This exhibition uncovers some of the treasure hunts that made and still make the Lionel Lindsay Library outstanding. It showcases treasured items and tells stories about bibliophiles, collectors and dealers who assisted the Boltons to bring them together.
