Text by Emma Matthews. Introduction by Barry Jones. Melbourne : Thames & Hudson in association with the State Library of Victoria, 2009. Quarto, boards in dustjacket (slight handling wear), pp. 176, illustrated; a fine copy. Strizic’s iconic images of twentieth century Melbourne.
“This work shows us many aspects of Melbourne – its magnificent architectural heritage, its intimate and vibrant laneways, its grand arcades counter-posed by sudden spaces created by the wrecker, the brash intrusion of the glass and concrete skyscrapers, the poignancy of poverty in the run-down inner suburbs.” – dustjacket
