Summary

An artist's book including 15 hand finished lino prints on Iwaki Mulberry paper using Sajura oils, and housed in an illustrated wooden box. The folder for the book is a large etching. The work was inspired by the artist's trips to Hinchinbrook Island, Queensland, to meet environmental activist Margaret Thorsborne (1927-2018). The book pits her against the "white shoe brigade" developer Keith Williams (1929-2011), and also provides a visual memoir of other lost aspects of Cairns.
