Description - The Artificial Horizon by Martin Thomas

In his masterful study of he imagined landscape in Australian culture, Martin Thomas disentangles the intricate accumulated meanings of the iconic Australian landscape of the Blue Mountains in NSW. He engages with the complex interplay between myth and history to produce an evocative, sophisticated and wide-ranging discussion of place and colonialism. Richly illustrated and meticulously researched, this is not only an achievement of international scholarly standard, but also a book to savour and enjoy.
