Product description

A glorious book that explores renowned artist Bronwyn Bancroft's reverence and love for the vast and varied awe inspiring landscapes of Australia "Gorges that plummet into serpentine shadows . . . ""Cloaks of white that drape the rocky crags of snowy mountains . . . ""Learning the desert sky by the warmth of an open fire." In this magnificent celebration of country, Bronwyn Bancroft uses both images and words to explore the beauty of the Australian continent and to express the depth of her feelings about it. It is a superb and unique showcase of reverence for landscape--from the coast and the outback to the cities and plains, from dramatic gorges to rugged alpine peaks, and from barren deserts to lush rainforests, Australia is undoubtedly a place of unrivaled beauty that is captured perfectly in Bancroft's book.
