Purchase one of Chong’s cover portraits and support ABR

Australian Book Review – to celebrate its fiftieth year – is offering a series of portrait prints of distinguished writers and cultural figures by the noted Australian artist-designer W.H. Chong. Throughout 2011, several ABR covers featured a superb original print – the perfect adornment for a personal library, and a fine gift for an admirer of the individual subjects. The series began in February, with Paul Kelly (now SOLD OUT), and continued with Dorothy Hewett, Patrick White, Julian Assange, and Kate Grenville, and David Malouf.

Each portrait is available exclusively from ABR. The unframed prints – presented in a limited edition – are signed, numbered and individually hand-coloured by Chong.

Each print is priced at $150 for ABR subscribers – $195 for non-subscribers. Postage and handling is an additional $15.

Place your order soon – these editions will sell out fast! Orders can also be placed for the complete set. To order, call (03) 9699 8822, or complete the order form (see link below).

W.H.-Chong

W.H. Chong and ABR

ABR readers are very familiar with Chong’s work. He has designed more than 600 book covers (many featuring his own artwork) over the last twenty years. He was the designer of ABR’s covers from 2001 to 2008. He also writes a highly popular culture blog for Crikey: Culture Mulcher.

Chong – a Patron and long-time supporter of the magazine – has generously waived any income from the series. Any profits will go to ABR to assist it in its publishing and programs.

In recent years Chong has turned to portrait drawing. In 2010 he chronicled the first year of the Wheeler Centre for Books, Ideas and Writing. You can see the drawings at http://www.flickr.com/photos/wheelercentresketchbook.
