One critic claimed that Manuscripts 'was determined to remove the charge of insularity & provincialism from Australian art criticism" (see Montana 2013 'Fantasy Modern: Loudon Sainthill's Theatre Of Art & Life'). This issue has essays (eg criticism in relation to Australian literature; D H Lawrence & sex: the marionette theatre & the first Australian ballet; Tahitian chronicles (Gino Nibbi), Lionel Lindsay's bookplates etc) as well as artworks by Dorrit Black, Paul Gaugin [sic] Charles Wheeler, Marjorie Wood, Don Finley & Arthur Baldwinson (who became an influential modernist architect).
