This book is an important milestone in Australian art. It will not long be in print.

Know My Name presents 150 Australian Women Artists through their work and specially written texts by 115 leading writers. Fabulous double-page spreads for each artist, presenting the artists’ works, and most texts by the acknowledged biographer for the artist. For example, Fiona Hall is represented by her Paradisus terrestris sardine-tin sculptures and an essay by Julie Ewington; Rosalie Gascoigne by her monumental Monaro sculpture of sawn soft-drink boxes and an essay by Deborah Hart; and Del Kathryn Barton by a multi-panel painting accompanied by another Julie Ewington text.
