A Sliver of Time by Smith Ivan & Olsen John
Harper & Row Quarto Size [approx 24cm x 30.5cm]. Very Good condition in Good Dustjacket - now protected in purpose-made plastic sleeve. Wonderful colour illustrations by John Olsen. 80 pages Foreword by Sir Talbot Duckmanton. The third book in the series which began with 'Death of a Wombat', followed by 'Dingo King'. The previous books were illustrated by Clifton Pugh. Another book 'A Sometimes River' with text by Blashki and illustrations by Pugh was published in 1986 and is also regarded as a completion of the trilogy - of course with different text and illustrations. An important statement about the Australian outback and also allegories of the human condition.
