Rich and Rare: A Collection of Australian Stories, Poetry and Artwork Edited by Paul Collins
An anthology can be compared to a patchwork quilt, sewn by many hands. Each piece in the patchwork is different: distinctive in texture, shape, pattern, colour. Each piece, separately created, has its own individuality, is self contained, and could exist on its own. You are about to enjoy some of Australia's best stories, poetry and artwork from the likes of: Shaun Tan, Leigh Hobbs, James Roy, Justin D'Ath, Kirsty Murray, Simon Higgins, Gary Crew, Scot Gardner and many others...
