2.22 Bronwyn Bancroft, An Australian ABC of Animals (2004)

Bronwyn Bancroft must be one of the best known Aboriginal painters and illustrators. You can see her website: www.bronwynbancroft.com

Bancroft was born in northern New South Wales, and is a descendant of the Djanbun clan of the Bundjalung nation.

This book is an ABC, so one picture of an Australian animal per page. It's done in the contemporary Aboriginal style - don't know how to describe it any more accurately than that. I think it might work better as a series of wall hangings, because the pictures are simple and would work well from a distance. I particularly like Z for Zebra Lionfish, an animal I had not previously known existed.
