Congratulations Terry!
I know from personal experience how much time and effort it takes to put a book
together. The New Zealand focus fills a gap that makes the book even more
worthy.

AUSTRALIAN POSTER BIENNALE 2013

The Australian Poster Biennale 2013 :
AGDA collaborated with UNICEF to create the theme for this year's Australian
Poster Biennale, which received responses from around the globe, including
Turkey, Poland, China, Ecuador, USA, England, Greece.

Designers were invited to create posters in response to the theme
"A mother's life is precious"
The 40 finalist posters dealt with a range of issues surrounding women's rights,
women's health and maternal mortality.

What I like about these pages is that they provide links to larger images and
Rationales provided by each designer. It is good for students to see the reasons
why the designers used the images in the posters.
