Since 1906 cinematographers have been drawn to the glamour and strangeness of the story of Australia's own outlaw son, the Bushranger Ned Kelly. Whether making history as the subject of the very first feature film, or being hammed up by Mick Jagger in the 1970's, the excitement and romance of the Kelly Gang has enchanted generations of dreamers and makers. The secret life of any outlaw is as much about waiting quietly as raiding and revelry, and with Melbournalia's contempative Such is Life Pack, you'll be killing time with the best of them: playing cards, writing historical letters or bush ballads, or making sketches of your fellow ne'erdowells.
Melbournalia's Such is Life Pack features a beautifully produced pack of Kelly Gang Playing Cards, a handmade and hand screenprinted notebook by Aussie independent stationery moguls Me and Amber, and a 100% post-consumer waste, artist-quality fineliner pen made by Melbourne's own Lousy Liner. The days of the bushranger may be gone, but Aussie love for Ned Kelly, our robber philosopher, will never die.
