Judges’ Comments Just about everything about this book sits pretty sweetly. The valiant typographic cover says it all. We loved the resolute use of black and white throughout and the raw stock which manages to hold the detail of the array of archival imagery. The serif utilised for body text and captions is more colourful than you would ever find in the newspapers it discusses, but this adds to the personality of this wonderful, yet modest book.
