Reseña del editor:

Tasmania's first European settlers were a diverse and eclectic lot—men and women from all walks of life who ended up cast together in a far-flung colony at the end of the world, where adversity was commonplace but opportunity abounded. From former convicts to the highly privileged, they forged their own ways in Van Diemen's land—as farmers, traders, publicans, whalers, businessmen, politicians, and more. As they, along with the colony, prospered, they built places of residence and business that stand today as a testament to the quality of Tasmania's early craftsmanship, the wealth of some of its first European residents, and their desire to recreate a piece of home in their new surrounds, no matter how hostile the environment. Tasmania is blessed that so many of these buildings are intact today. Some have been in the same families since the 1820s, others have been saved from ruin or converted into homes after previous lives as anything from hop kilns to coach houses and public schools. All have fascinating stories to tell that reflect the diversity of those early settlers, the adversities they faced, and the opportunities they harnessed, as well as of the characters that inhabit them today. Living in History tells some of these stories through sumptuous photos of Tasmania's most historically and architecturally significant buildings, complemented by text that transports the reader back in time and takes them through to the present, where the current generation of homeowners is literally living in history.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
