Swamp Cartography book available

The book of the project is now available to purchase online. I'd like to say that each purchase comes with one of Shannon's gorgeous scribbly gum yunomis (cups) but I'm afraid you will need to purchase these separately!

It includes an essay by Dr Tamsin Kerr , written meanderings from Shannon and Rebecca and many beautiful photographs that we took on field trips, photographs of the processes that we used and of the finished pieces.
We asked Tamsin to write an essay for us after the inspiring speech she gave at the opening of Swamp Cartography earlier this year in Gympie which seemed to capture exactly what we were trying to convey. It was rewarding to hear our intentions so clearly articulated in Tamsin's prose and follow the threads of her research. That she has put our work into a broader context of women artists working in the wallum and with environmental themes was most gratifying to us!

The book can be purchased in soft or hardcover from this site:
