Henry Savery Book 2007

This artist book was the result of a one month residency at Port Arthur Historic Site, a colonial penal settlement in Southern Tasmania. The book is a meditation on the life and work of Henry Savery, Australia's first novelist, who was transported to Van Diemen's land for forgery in 1825 and is buried on the Isle of the Dead.

The images show selected pages from the book.

This project was assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.
