An all-ages colouring-in book based on Australian Indigenous artworks from the Balarinji Art & Design Archive.

Colouring Country is an art therapy book with a difference. It features 42 full-colour reproductions of superb Indigenous Australian artworks, each with a colouring template and a description of its story and cultural context from the Dreamtime.

The rhythm and motifs of Aboriginal artworks illustrate life in balance with the majesty of nature. They represent the joyful visual language of the world's oldest continuing culture.

The works in Colouring Country are from the Balarinji Art & Design Archive, an iconic collection of art, design and objects created by Sydney-based design studio, Balarinji. Ros Moriarty and John Moriarty established Balarinji in 1983; since then it has become recognised worldwide for covering Qantas aircraft in Aboriginal designs. The Archive is held by the National Museum of Australia, Canberra.
