A sampling of titles on offer:
Balgo: Creating Country by John Carty. This big, beautiful clothbound linen book will delight the art lovers on your list. With its full-colour photographs of paintings by the Warlayirti Artists, it tells the story of the Balgo art movement, one of the most vibrant, colourful and influential schools of Western Desert painting in Australia.
Shipwrecks of the Roaring Forties edited by Jeremy Green and Alistair Paterson. A fascinating research into the shipwrecks that litter the coast of Western Australia.
Fish Work by Caitlin Maling. The Great Barrier Reef comes alive in surprising descriptions that cast it as not only vulnerable but cheekily resilient.
Food of the Southern Forests by Sophie Zalokar. A cookbook for friends and family who appreciate good food and where it comes from, showcasing the delicious produce and culinary heritage of the Southern Forests Region.
Gift wrapping will be available on the day for a gold coin donation, going to local charity Give Write, which take donations of new and pre-loved stationery that they recycle, repackage and redistribute to kids in need so they have the tools to feel engaged and inspired to learn.
If you don't live locally or can't make it to the in-person sale, UWA Publishing are running a special online sale until 22 December at https://uwap.uwa.edu.au/collections/christmas-sale
