A new series of monographs on Australian female artists, selected with series editor Natalie King, curator and Enterprise Professor at the Victorian College of the Arts. These books are compact yet perfectly formed. They comprise 96 pages of the artist's favourite works - designed for optimum visual impact and to reach anyone who is inspired by art and beauty.
The extra appeal for these titles comes in the introduction. For each monograph, one luminary from another field will write a personal, powerful essay of 1200 words. It could be an ode to one particular painting; it could be a parallel narrative inspired by themes in the artist's work.
