Dr. Lynette Finch
Once I was a poster designer and illustrator. I ran a small poster business called Mantis Prints, specializing in political posters during the odd days of the Bjelke-Petersen Government in Queensland.
In my next incarnation I was a senior University lecturer in history. I published books and articles on urban health, history of childhood and political propaganda.
I am looking forward to the publication of my new book, Fixing Antarctica, which is a biography of Syd Kirkby, an extraordinary man who surveyed enormous tracts of Antarctica.
