26 Views of the Starburst World: William Dawes at Sydney Cove, 1788-91

Combining imagination with recorded history, Ross Gibson continues his speculative brilliance in 26 Views of the Starburst World. As he describes and interprets the pages of astronomer William Dawes’ notebooks, Gibson responds to the ambiguities in Dawes’ character and what is missing from his story in a set of twenty-six fragmentary views.
