Paperback octavo, very good condition, black & white & colour text-photos, covers lightly rubbed, base spine lightly bumped. 148 pp. (Limited edition of 1000 copies. ) This book is a reflection and commentary by both writers on "Raft", an artwork by Lewis in the Art Gallery of NSW, representing translated words (myths) from the Arrennte people. Two forms of translation emerge. The first is literal, ie, translation of Aboriginal texts that reflect Carl Strehlow (the missionary anthropologist) and his son (Ted, the Aboriginal classicist). The second is evocative-eg, it marks the blurred boundaries between Carl's secular agony and sacred epiphany.
