Summary

Bound in the style of a twentieth century prayer book, this title is a visual exploration through photo montage of seven areas of mistreatment of Indigenous Australians through history. Limited to 25 signed copies.

Notes

"7 disrupted interviews with history was made in 2007 in response to the death of Mulrunji Doomadgee while in police custody on Palm Island (2006) and as a celebration of the Noogar people's successful Native Title claim in Western Australia (2006). The book is printed on Mohawk Superfine (148 gsm). The pre-print work was completed by Lachlan Ewbank and the printing and binding was done at White's Law Bindery. I have borrowed the title from Oriana Fallaci. The book has been made in an edition of 25" [signed by the author]--Colophon.

Library's copy is no.4.
