Vault, Melbourne Postcard


Ships in 7-14 days

Vault (popularly and ironically known as "The Yellow Peril") is a controversial and influential public sculpture in Melbourne completed in 1980 by Ron Robertson-Swann. After a contentious installation in Melbourne's City Square lasted for only a few months, Vault found a home beside the Yarra in Batman Park. In 2005 Vault was moved to a location that has finally offered this modernist, minimalist piece of public art a context in which to shine. Now situated in the riverbed-like park surrounding ACCA, Vault's yellow angles beautifully complement the vast rusted-carapace of Melbourne's premier gallery of contemporary art. 

Postcards featuring Harper and Charlie's range of original retro prints. Celebrate the culture, architecture and design of Melbourne and Australia with a tiny piece from Melbourne's contemporary design community!

Inspired by art from the 1950s and 60s, Harper and Charlie use vintage print techniques to achieve their authentic feel. If you look closely you might be able to spot the careful details - slipped registration, slight colour-bleed, or light scuffs in the design - that give these beautiful designs their warmth and character.

Material(s): Printed in Australia on 100 percent recycled 300gsm card.

Dimensions (cm): 14.8 x 10.5 (A6 standard postcard size).
