A Day in Melbourne is a colour-in book for everyone from curious kids to culturally-minded travellers. Featuring approximately 20 line drawings of iconic Melbourne scenes - from the city skyline to street life, busy laneways and beautiful buildings - this picture book provides a snapshot of the city from morning to night, revealing the beauty, local icons and small details of this modern Australian metropolis. It's both a stylish keepsake of the city and the perfect art project to keep colourists engaged while reading vignettes that reveal a small story for each scene.
Melbourne: a city of stories grew out of Melbourne Museumâ€™s permanent exhibition, 'The Melbourne Story'. That makes it a selective history: one based on objects - things that have survived. The idea that objects can give rise to stories comes as no surprise to anyone whoâ€™s ever dug up a shard of old china in their garden, or found an ancient button down the back of a chair.
This book, "A letter to the Right Honourable Lord Viscount Melbourne On the Causes of the Recent Derangement in the Money Market, and on Bank Reform," by Robert Torrens, William L. Melbourne, is a replication of a book originally published before 1837. It has been restored by human beings, page by page, so that you may enjoy it in a form as close to the original as possible.
