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.
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.
