The ESA has always produced its own well designed ephemera. And in this regard has always benefited from the efforts of Melbourne designers (including Mimmo Cozzolino, Phil Ellett, Natasha Dumais, Andrew Budge, et al.) and design students from Swinburne University.
The ESA has been determined that its publications be collectable. Much to the inconvenience of libraries and binders, Ephemera News has not maintained a standard size and has been published in many formats – printed on a paper bag, as a poster, folded like a napkin, reproducing a 45 record, with a hand delivered wine stain.
Ephemera News ceased production in 2015 after the publication of #50.
The full-colour Ephemera Journal of Australia was launched in May 2015 and is produced annually.
