“Imants Tillers is recognised as one of Australia’s most intriguing and compelling artists. This monograph, the first major publication on his art, provides an overview of his career and a detailed introduction to the works he has produced since 1981, collectively known as the ‘Book of Power’. The text shows how, as Tillers reflected on and became engaged in the distribution and circulation of visual imagery, he developed into a true artist of the age of information. He has been remarkably prolific and few readers will be aware of the size and range of the output discussed here – more than 100 works are reproduced.” – dustjacket.
