Curious Minds: the Discoveries of Australian Naturalists by award-winning author Peter Macinnis, brings to life the stories of the naturalists and settlers who made the unfamiliar familiar and who contributed to developments in natural science. The publication is a loving tribute to the courageous and inquisitive men and women who led by example.
Through the use of strong typography, colour, pattern and texture we created a look and feel that fit with the tone of the book and the authors vision. Working with imagery from the National Library of Australia’s extensive collection, gave us the opportunity to create layouts that complemented the illustrations and photography of some of histories greatest naturalists.
The book includes works by Joseph Banks, Charles Darwin, Amalie Dietrich, Ludwig Leichhardt, Ferdinand von Mueller, Ellis Rowan, John Lewin and John and Elizabeth Gould.
Special thanks to Susan Hall and the team at the National Library of Australia for the opportunity to work on such a unique project. Read Less
