When We Think about Melbourne: The Imagination of a City

Jenny Sinclair

What exactly makes Melbourne unique? And why do we always struggle to describe the city’s differences? Journalist Jenny Sinclair went in search of the answers and discovered that it’s actually all in our head - or, more prosaically, our collective imagination. When We Think About Melbourne is a wry and whimsical survey of the city’s x-factor. It observes with a keen and appreciative eye the changing physical, social and cultural landscape of Melbourne through its literature, music, art, maps, travel and transport. Will appeal to the same people who bought The Melbourne Book, Melbourne: The Making of an Eating & Drinking Capital and The Slow Guide to Melbourne. This title will receive widespread coverage, and the indefatigable Jenny Sinclair will publicise the book extensively across print media and radio. Serialised in The Age’s A2 supplement. The title is supported by the City of Melbourne, which will assist with additional publicity and promotion. Co-published with the State Library of Victoria, this book will feature a wealth of visual material, including original photography and many defining images that have shaped Melbourne’s opinion of itself.
