Dorothy Erickson's book, shortlisted for the Premier’s Book Award in 2015, an endeavour some 40 years in the making, is an introduction to the work of the artist-crafts people, designers and makers who drew their inspiration from the western third of this land. It is the first coverage of this wide-ranging topic and an essential companion for anyone interested in Western Australian art, design and heritage.

It is, without doubt, the most comprehensive treatment of designers and makers in Western Australia and will be both a treasured and essential volume for anyone with an interest in the extraordinary tradition of craft and design in our vast state. The easy style and copious, beautiful illustrations will capture the imagination of specialists and non-specialists, alike.”
