"A lot of people ask, 'Why do they [Indigenous people] choose the hard road? But for brothers and sisters that go into prison, there's only ever been one road, and that's the hard road. Something like this has shone a light on another road … the path that leads away from prison" - Robby Knight, artist. See his work on display in Yannae Wirrate Weelam: The Journey Home. Artworks from The Torch at Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum from Sun 3 Jul.

Museum Victoria's Dr. Erich Fitzgerald is pictured with ‘Osteographie des cetaces vivants et fossils’ (1868) and a specimen of a Ganges River Dolphin. According to Erich the book is still useful to palaeontologists nearly 150 years later, due to the quality and accuracy of the illustrations. Listen to Erich's talk about the intersection of palaeontology and rare books at his lecture ‘stones, bones and tomes’ on Saturday, July 16! http://bit.ly/28OfcZw
