Looking into June

It's all systems go here at the moment. I'm currently working on two books, the first is about James Drummond Burns, a poet who didn't survive the first world war; the second is a revised version of 'Aborigines in the Yarra Valley and Northern Dandenongs', a book I was lucky enough to do the previous layout for in 2011.

Although I've worked on quite a few war stories in the last three years, this is the first one about an individual who didn't make it back home. He was a great poet before his death and the book publishes his writings including poems and an essay 'Winter in Victoria'. I don't think it's quite as confronting as some of the recent books I have worked on, as it doesn't document the daily life of war and hardships afterwards, but it does display the short life of a talented individual who could have become a greater part of Australian literature if it wasn't for his early death.
