stapled booklet, 9¾" x 10", (stamps not included) To help celebrate Australia's Bicentenary in 1988, Australia Post issued an historic series of stamps.

A selection of Aboriginal rock paintings from five States were depicted on these stamps - this book is a detailed background to the inspiration of each design. With references. Illustrated throughout with colour photography. Booklet in VERY GOOD condition 36 pages. Bookseller Inventory #
