Book Launch – Portraits of Country

Local award-winning poet Michael Giacometti launches his first poetry booklet, Portraits of Country, a collection of haiku inspired by the central Australian landscape.
Gracefully simple and eloquent, Portraits of Country is a meditation on place. It is a visual and melodic exploration of landscapes – lost, emerging, and uncertain.

The watermark of a ghost
gum hangs in the mist
where a hill might grow

Limited edition print.
Special launch price of $15 (RRP) $18. Cash sales only.
