Mawson’s Huts – The Birthplace of Australia’s Antarctic Heritage has been produced by the Mawson’s Huts Foundation in partnership with the Australian Antarctic Division to generate revenue for the ongoing conservation of the huts.
Published by Allen and Unwin, this coffee table style book (305mm by 295mm) contains over 200 high quality images including the largest ever published collection of historic images by Mawson’s official photographer Frank Hurley – many being published for the first time. Plus over 100 contemporary colour images capturing the huts as they are today and the raw beauty of Cape Denison and the region’s wildlife.
The intensive work of restoring Mawson’s Huts is already well underway but we need your help and what better way to show your support than to purchase this beautiful book, either for yourself or as a gift for family and friends. Copies can be ordered now via the order form on page three, or from the Mawson’s Huts Foundation. All proceeds go toward the conservation of the huts.
