Looking After Country With Fire

Relative Creative recently had the privilege of designing the layout for Looking After Country With Fire: Aboriginal burning knowledge with Uncle Kuu.

About the project

Looking After Country With Fire tells a story about Aboriginal burning knowledge and how for thousands of years Aboriginal people have managed the land by burning Country. The book is authored by Victor Steffensen and illustrated by Sandra Steffensen. This book takes many of the significant insights of Fire Country and presents them in story form for children. Tristan Schultz worked closed with Victor, Sandra and the Hardie Grant team to design and layout this stunning book. This included selecting typography and considering the way this was used throughout the book to contribute to the story telling and celebrate the beautiful illustrations.
