A miscellany of Splinters material in the ACT Heritage Library archive from right across the history of the company – tickets, press cuttings, flyers, stickers, which were in DB’s collection in a grey plastic satchel. The handmade Cathedral of Flesh “Boot” ticket is my favourite.

This stunning Gumboot Full of Blood notebook demonstrates the creative intensity of this period of Splinters, which was in essence Stuart, Patrick Troy and David Branson on the road in Adelaide and Melbourne and working with local collaborators. It speaks for itself. Enjoy.
