Macquarie Atlas of Indigenous Australia longlisted for ABIA Illustrated Book of the Year 2020

Last year, we published the second edition of the Macquarie Atlas of Indigenous Australia. We are honoured that this book has made the longlist for the Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIA) 2020. It has been longlisted under Illustrated Book of the Year 2020. From the ABIA website:

The ABIAs showcase the collaborative efforts of publishers, editors, illustrators, marketers, designers, and authors in bringing quality books to Australia and abroad. It’s also a great opportunity to celebrate what we’ve done as an industry — and the joys of bringing books into the world.

The Macquarie Atlas of Indigenous Australia is a collabroative publication of the Australian National University, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Macquarie Dictionary. Combining the magic of maps with the latest data from the 2016 Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Atlas allows us to explore a visual history of Indigenous Australia.

The shortlist for the ABIAs 2020 will be announced on 9 April 2020. Good luck to all the nominees.
