From Captain Cook’s globe to Mabo’s map, and Melba’s frock to Cathy Freeman’s running suit, this is Australia’s history told through a gallery of things. Former Rolling Stone editor Toby Creswell has curated an illustrated popular history of Australia accumulated through the review of 100 fascinating man-made objects. Creswell takes each object as the starting point to explore the stories that make up our national history, exploring and celebrating key technological, social, political and sporting moments. From Ned Kelly’s armour to Henry Lawson’s pen and Julia Gillard’s glasses, the chosen objects are sometimes iconic, sometimes unexpected and quirky .Each entry is accompanied by a striking image of the object. The History of Australia in 100 Objects is a fresh, popular take on Australia’s history.
