Summary "James Northfield and the art of selling Australia celebrates the career of one of Australia's most notable and influential commercial artists. During the first half of the 20th century Northfield's work played an essential role in creating many of the visual symbols of our national identity, and elaborating upon others. Yet, while some of his most distinctive posters are well known, he has received little public recognition."--Foreword
