Follow the Flag: Australian Artists at War 1914-15 at NGV Australia Federation Square

This is not actually a book but an exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria intended as an ANZAC tribute. The exhibition will open on Friday 24 April. See details below. This should be well worth seeing if you’re in Melbourne during the exhibition.
