Burke & Wills was designed to pay respect to an expedition that helped shape the history of Australia. Subtle colour has been used to break-up chapters and the body of text. The images have been etched so they appear as a collection of historic artifacts, not lifeless flat reproductions of the originals. The design aims to give a personal and precious treatment to an important scientific analysis.
