Little Book of Banksias
The banksia is quintessentially Australian. Known and loved for its brush-like flowers and sweet honey nectar, the plant embodies both the beauty and harshness of the Australian Landscape. Little Book of Banksias features poem and extracts by some of Australia's greatest poets and explorers, including Dorothy Hewett, Archie Weller, Douglas Stewart and Edward John Eyre. These insights sit alongside works by renowned artists such as Ellis Rowan, Adam Forester and Ebenezer Edward Gostelow. Inspired by the collections of the National Library of Australia, Little Book of Banksias is a delightful showcase of out most beautiful Australian 'Bush Candles'. Would make a wonderful gift for an expat Aussie!
