From the publishers of the bestseller First Australians comes the lavishly illustrated art + soul, the companion book to the prime-time ABC TV series by the same name.
Over the last thirty years, a magical flowering of Aboriginal art has occurred in Australia – captivating viewers around the world with astonishingly powerful artworks, and creating a new art movement that could not have been imagined in the 1970s.
Hetti Perkins, who stars in the series, takes readers on a personal journey of discovery into a world of ideas and the imagination of leading Aboriginal artists around Australia. She travels from the startlingly beautiful landscapes of remote Arnhem land to Sydney and from saltwater country to the desert heartlands of Central Australia.
art + soul includes more than 200 artworks and photography from director Warwick Thornton, awarded the Camera D'or at Cannes for Samson and Delilah.
