Paperback: $10.53
Prints in 3-5 business days

More > travelled south between the ice ages. Did you know that there are around one million camels living in the wild in Australia?

These are just a few of the gems in this short history of Australia. It is just under 30,000 words which represents about eighty pages in a standard print book.

More > Scotland and Ireland for that long. And yet, within the space of 25 years, they all migrated to Australia. For three of them it was involuntary – they were convicts. But for the others, it was a choice to make a new life in what was still a turbulent colony.

Hardcover: $80.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Print Wikipedia is a both a utilitarian visualization of the largest accumulation of human knowledge and a poetic gesture towards the inhuman scale of big data. Michael Mandberg wrote software that... More > parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia’s content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less

More > failure. The subject is surrounded with difficulty. Captain Dampier was the first Englishman known to have made the acquaintance of the Australian natives, whom he calls "the poor winking people of New Holland, the miserablest people on earth," and so forth. During the intervening two centuries we have not added much to our knowledge regarding them. They have no written language, and are forbidden to speak of the dead: two serious obstacles to research. During my wanderings in Western Australia, in the capacity of a mining engineer, I came across a good many of the natives; and taking a profound interest in everything connected with the colony I resolved to set down in brief and simple form such facts...< Less
