Australia. Big. Beautiful. Diverse. From First People to washing lines
and crocodiles, football and sunshine, koalas and Akubras, skyscrapers
and beaches that squeak, this 96-page tome is an illustrious homage to
this wide brown land and its rich and varied multicultural communities.
Vibrantly illustrated with watercolour, ink, mono-printing and digital art, Australia Illustrated not
only celebrates the more ‘typical’ Australian flora, fauna and
landmarks, it showcases the everyday quirks and idiosyncrasies that make
Australia unique. Types of rain, Greek street food, Sydney ferries,
cattle breeds, plants of the Daintree—even the quokka selfie
epidemic—will delight both children and adults.
Divided into Australia-wide entries and also elements from each state
and territory, readers will learn more about the endemic plants,
animals, foods, landmarks, sports and oddities that make the regions
around Australia special.
Whimsical, humorous and high in detail, this is Australia like you’ve never seen it before. Grab your snorkel. Let’s dive in.
Australia Illustrated marks the illustration debut of award-winning author, Tania McCartney.
