Victor Majzner arrived in Australia in 1959 as a Jewish refugee from Russia. His career as a painter accelerated during the 1980s when, as a migrant seeking identity, he began to travel inland and study the antiquity of the ancient continent as well as forming close bonds with several important Aboriginal artists from the Warmun Community in the Northern Territory. His spectacular and unconventional paintings deal with issues of identity and, over recent years, with his developing sense of his Jewish heritage. Some paintings, more surreal than his Australian landscapes, emerged from his late 1990s travels to the Negev Desert in Israel. A feature to this book is its inclusion of pen and ink studies made as preliminaries to the major paintings.Leigh Astbury teaches art history at Monash University, Melbourne.This book also comes as a special edition with original etching by Victor Majzner and a slip-case.

More than a distant continent, Antarctica is a land of the imagination, shaping and shaped for centuries by explorers, adventurers, scientists, and dreamers. The Entire Earth and Sky conjures all these ideas and interweaves them with the experience and history of Antarctica, balancing the reality of the frigid outpost populated by a ragtag alliance of international researchers against the crystalline dreamscape of a continent at the bottom of the world. When Leslie Carol Roberts went to Antarctica for the first time with Greenpeace, she was hoping to save the world. In the twenty years since then she has shifted to the no less difficult task of saving Antarctica itself, compiling memoirs and stories, learning the biology and geography of the icy land, and documenting her own journey. This book pieces together the tragic and heroic tales of nineteenth-century exploration, interviews with scientists, and the author’s personal observations. The result is a remarkable collage that evokes the beauty and the complexity, the perils and the rewards of a lifelong engagement with the earth’s last wilderness. A kaleidoscope of legends, stories, field notes, images, reports, history, letters, and research, the book renders an impression, at once vast and microscopic, of the effect of human beings on the land and ice we call Antarctica, and its effect on us.
