The ’52 Suburbs’ book is on its way

There can’t be many people left who haven’t heard of Louise Hawson or her 52 Suburbs project. I was so excited to discover that the ’52 Suburbs’ blog has become a book and is due out on May 1! I found out about Louise and her photography adventure in November 2010. She took some gorgeous photographs of several inner west suburbs (Marrickville, Newtown, Alexandria, Summer Hill, Dulwich Hill) which featured in her visually stunning ’52 Suburbs’ blog and I am hoping to see some of those images in the book as well.

Here is a sneak peak at the awesome front cover (the numbers are actually cut out of the front cover and the full photograph is hidden behind it). How do I know this you ask! Well Louise Hawson told me… well not exactly told me as such… more like she told everyone who subscribes to her newsletter… which just happens to include me.

The book will be sold for $39.95, and it will be such an awesome gift to give friends and family who might live in one of the featured suburbs or anyone who loves Sydney! Photos from her ’52 Suburbs’ adventure will also be appearing in an exhibition at the Museum of Sydney from May 14 2011 until October 9 2011.
