Book of the Week

Joy Hester
Burke, Janine

The jacket is lightly creased at the edges, the front hinge has two small chips at its head and tail, and the back paste down has minor loss at the top outer edge, for the rest, the book is immaculate. Joy St Clair Hester, 21 August 1920 - 4 December 1960, was an Australian artist who played an important role in the development of Australian modernism. Hester, who married and later divorced Albert Tucker, was a contemporary of Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd, Charles Blackman, John Perceval and Laurence Hope. She helped to establish the Contemporary Art Society (CAS) and was the only female painter in the modernist movement, the Angry Penguins.

About Good Reading

Good Reading was established in 1991. In early 2013, I downsized from a shop which spanned a block and two stories to a largish house which resembles a rabbit warren. There are at approximately 40,000 titles, including over 10,000 books in Italian, French, German, Modern Greek, Latin and classical Greek., most of which have not yet been catalogued.

I also have a very large Theology section, and a substantial cookery and Australian History one.

Please contact me if there is a specific title you are chasing as it may be languishing on the shelf uncatalogued.
