Magnificent Makers

State Library of Queensland

9th December - 3rd June

Explore Queensland’s unique history of innovation in State Library of Queensland’s upcoming exhibition, Magnificent Makers.

The exhibition profiles the lives and works of a group of remarkable Queenslanders who thought outside the box to craft pioneering creations from the late 1800s to the present day.

Using the technology available to them at the time, these innovators made significant developments in the areas of education, sport, leisure, clothing, photography, medicine and scientific research.

One of the most intriguing items on display is an intricate Braille globe for vision-impaired children, invented in Queensland in the 1950s by Richard Frank Tunley.

Tunley dedicated his life to improving outcomes for vision-impaired children and adults, producing Braille globes and maps, as well as being instrumental in implementing compulsory education for deaf and blind children.
