Illustrated book bound in gold with an exposed spine. The text is "Australia Suite" written by Lynn Hard with drawings by Garry Shead. 76 pages. Signed by the Author and Artist.

The binding is made from gilded boards held together with scrim which is usually hidden by the spine. Linen and silk thread, and embossed lines on the boards, are used to reflect Shead's linear drawing style. The inside boards are covered in distressed silver coloured leaf. Finished with traditional shellac for protection.

The binding has a lovely textured appearance thanks to some of the bole being left exposed and rubbing back to enhance the colour.

26 cm x 21.5cm (approx 10.2" x 8.5")

This piece was included in the "Australia Suite" exhibition at the Maitland Regional Gallery 2010. See the YouTube site for some views of the exhibition. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFgux3kSlnc
