Launceston Revealed

Available for $35.00 in the QVMAG Shops at Inveresk and Royal Park. Or, complete the Shop Order Form(PDF, 130KB) and return to shop@qvmag.tas.gov.au

Launceston Revealed takes the reader on a panoramic journey through Launceston's history: from a time when what would become Launceston was Aboriginal tribal land; through to the present day, as the city's river fronts undergo substantial change and development. The book is many things: a pictorial record, a cartographic history, a historical narrative and an entertaining trip into the past and back to 2019. Most of all, it is the story of a city, the land and its people.

Spider is a word that instils fear into the minds of many, yet when viewed close up, this diverse and often maligned creature becomes both fascinating and beautiful. This book illustrates many of the spiders found in Tasmania, including the common, the unusual, the new and those that are yet to be formally described and named.
