Symbols of Australia: “Trademarks are a symbol of a culture… and a country’s distilled history.” So begins the introduction of the remarkable book Symbols of Australia by Mimmo Cozzolino and Fysh Rutherford. The symbols shown here provide “visual delights… quaint slices of life from the past… and (the hope for) confidence in our search for independence, and faith to determine our own future.” From top left, left to right: White Way (cleaning preparation), Nutt & Jones, Sydney, 1926.
