Norman Lindsay: 80 Years of Pencil Drawing

The earliest drawing reproduced in this book was done in 1889, when Norman Lindsay was ten years old; the latest, in 1969, the year he died at the age of ninety. The text complements the drawings, weaving into the book excerpts from Norman Lindsay’s life and providing insights into his relationships with his family, friends and models. There are also comments from Lindsay’s own writings and from his family and contemporaries.

You will find this title in the Reference collection at Springwood Library.

This title is held in the Reference collections of Springwood and Katoomba Libraries.
