Foreword by G Nossal
A collection of essays by George Seddon on landscape in Australia. The topics covered by Seddon are as usual wide-ranging.
Landprints is a history, artistic and literary criticism, its is natural history and philosophy. It reveals the principles of landscape architecture, conservation, geology and ecology while avoiding the dryness of most textbooks. It is above all a search for general perspectives from particular examples. It is a valiant attempt to confront some of the key paradoxes of the day - internationalism, and regionalism. Seddon recognises the place of humans in the landscape, revels in the interplay between natural forms and human creations. (Foreword)
