Good things do come in small packages! As an art book addict I have developed a lopsided lope, almost all art books are just plain heavy, they are usually too big for a bag or if fortunate enough, are provided with a smart over the shoulder canvas number with appropriate bookishness printed on the front.
My latest book however is a little black corker! Titled “The Rapture of Death” by Prue Gibson is motel bible-sized. Totally black cloth bound, blood-red marbled inner binding and the printing almost Gothic. As a bonus it is a fascinating read so far concerning contemporary Australian art and the macabre.
