This series by Mountford and Roberts are beautifully illustrated with gorgeous haunting paintings. I have the original editions and the Dreamtime stories come from all over Australia.

This book combines two of my favourite interests - art, and mythology. The artist's works are all given their size and the person in whose collection they were at the time of the book printing. The blurb tells us that a 1968 exhibition of his work was sold out, and I can understand why.
The writing of the myths to accompany the art is done by an ethnologist, in easy-to-read short texts.
An excellent book.
