Title: James Northfield and the Art of Selling Australia
Author: Michelle Hetherington Pages: 96
The perfect book on your coffee table to compliment the art on your wall.
James Northfield's commercial posters capture quintessential Australian locations and atmospheres which have become synonymous with Australian identity. He was one of Australia's most successful artists between the 1920s and 1950s but after his death in 1978 these images and his legacy were largely forgotten. This publication pays homage to the significant contribution Northfield made to Australian commercial art. It details the development of his artistic style and career, and includes stunning illustrations of his work. We hope that by making this book available to you on this site, Northfield will once again receive the public recognition he deserves.
