About the Author:

Armin Greder was born in Switzerland. In 1971 he migrated to Australia where he worked as a graphic designer and later taught design and illustration at a tertiary art institution. Books he has illustrated include The Great Bear, An Ordinary Day and I Am Thomas, all written by Libby Gleeson. Books he has authored and illustrated include The Island and The City. His work, in which charcoal is prominent, reflects his European background. He is the recipient of a number of international recognitions such as the Bologna Ragazzi Award and has been nominated for the Hans Christian Andersen Prize.

Review:

"Australia to Z—an alphabet book, but not one for the young and teaching them their letters. Instead Armin Greder has cast his critical eye on us and our symbols."  —Libby Gleeson 

"Armin Greder's Australia to Z is a disquieting and potent work—a 'gloves off' account of Australian nationhood, and how we as a culture, might appear to those from other cultures. Alphabets are thought to be the province of young children, but here the format has been used to engage with adult concepts in a cryptic and powerful way. This is a profoundly significant work which will—like Greder's The Island and The City—provoke, disturb and challenge the reader's perception of what it means to be Australian, and what it means to be a global citizen." —Dr. Robyn Sheahan-Bright
