Format: Paperback
I bought a copy of this last year to read before a trip to Australia. I knew very little about Aborigine art but this is an excellent introduction to this fascinating culture with such a vast and powerful art history.
Coverage is given to the various regions of Australia, pointing out differing cultures, environments, subject matter, styles and techniques. I was also pleased to discover it gave coverage not just to the traditional arts but also to more contemporary works, pointing out both the continuations and differences.

I bought this book for my son as a reference guide for his GCSE Art. The original at school had been knicked as it was so popular.
He produced a Brilliant piece of work inspired by it's content and pictures. He used ther inspiration from the art to produce a map from his home to school in the style of the Aboriginees on a massive pot from B&Q.
If you want a great little book on the subject then buy this.

I haven't finished this book yet but I am finding it fascinating. Very well written as it reminds you of facts as you go along. This is very useful as the Aboriginal culture is very complex. I wish more of the photos were in colour but I would recommend this book.
