Island Story - Tasmania in Object and Text
 
(0 reviews)  

A handsome full-colour book pairing unique items from the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, TMAG, with selections of original writing about Australia's largest southern island.

Indigenous dispossession, a cruel penal history, gay-rights battles; exceptional landscapes, unusual wildlife, environmental activism; colonial architecture, arts and crafts, a thriving creative scene -- all are part of the story of Tasmania. And they find their expression in the unparalleled collection of Hobart's TMAG.

In Island Story, Ralph Crane and Danielle Wood select almost sixty representative TMAG objects- from shell necklaces to a convict cowl, colonial scrimshaw to a thylacine pincushion, contemporary photography to a film star's travelling case. Each is matched to texts old and new, by writers as diverse as Anthony Trollope, Marie Bjelke-Petersen, Helene Chung, Jim Everett, Heather Rose and Ben Walter.
