Marriage: Love and Law exhibition catalogue - Page 73



Post-war European migrants brought various identity documents to Australia
with them, including ‘family books’. They were issued to a bride and groom
and provided legal certification that a marriage had taken place (51).
The books also were used to record the births of children, and in some cases,
deaths in the family. The family booklets not only function as records,
but they provide a unique example of mid-20th Century European graphic
design (52–55).
