Description

Consisting of a painting, a frog cake, a landmark, a statue, a haunting newspaper photograph, a bucket of peaches, pink shorts in parliament, concert tickets, and tourist maps, this book is a museum of sorts--a personal guide to the city of Adelaide, Australia, through a collection of iconic objects. These objects explore the beautiful, commonplace, dark, and contradictory history of Adelaide, including the heat, the wine, the weirdness, the progressive politics, the rigid colonial formality, the sinister horrors, and the homey friendliness. A unique way of looking at the city through a small-scale lens, this evocative handbook will engage residents and visitors alike.
