Our latest book, Canberra following Griffin: A Design History of Australia's National Capital by the late Paul Reid, was launched in two cities -- Canberra, the city that Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin planned, and Sydney, where the Griffins' vision of an ideal community was realised in Castlecrag. Shown here at the Canberra launch are (from left to right) Wendy Reid, wife of the late author, architect Phillip Cox who launched the book, and Anne-Marie Schwirtlich, our acting Director-General. The launch of this richly illustrated and informative book coincided with an exhibition of the original Griffin plans that won the international competition for the design of Canberra in 1912. The exhibition, A Vision Splendid: How the Griffins Imagined Australia's National Capital, continues until 29 September in our Canberra gallery. Canberra following Griffin ($90), the exhibition booklet of A Vision Splendid ($7.95), and a poster of Marion's Mt Ainslie view ($5) can be purchased at the exhibition, by phoning (02) 6212 3609 or by emailing email@example.com.

These papers are being progressively digitised and loaded onto our database RecordSearch to make them more accessible.
