Printed images in Colonial Australia 1801-1901.
Canberra: National Gallery of Australia, 2007

Every so often comes a book which makes us rethink what we know. Roger Butler, senior curator of Australian prints and drawings at the National Gallery of Australia, has done that in his Printed: Images in Colonial Australia 1801-1901. Published to accompany the gallery’s exhibition, The Story of Australian Printmaking 1801-2005, the book – the first of three volumes on print-making in Australia – has a significant impact on our knowledge and understanding of Australian art.
