I'm a bit predudiced here as I am always on the lookout for ways to depict the Australian lanscape which in not English, European or American all of which are generally much softer while Australian bush has a harsher, hard edged feel. Mahony's drawings shown in this book do that, in my opinion.
Loved the feeling she achieved with the angophora's as I grew up and live in the parts of Sydney where they grow and she depicts the architecture as it still is to an extent today (progress!) .
It also particularly helps to correct the unheralded contribution of women to architecture and generally shows that architecture is produced by a team not just a celebrity architect(Walter Burley Griffen).
