Three useful catalogues have been published but no new editions have appeared in over 20 years.

One of the best periodicals on postcard collecting is Picture Postcard Monthly published in Nottingham, England by Brian and Mary Lund. Aside from the journals of the individual state collector's societies there is no regular publication dealing with card collecting in Australia.
