Further information:
"The suits of armour that the Kelly gang fashioned for themselves have become to the Australian public potent icons of a bushranger. It’s significant that the icons are of defensive armour as opposed to offensive weapons. The four suits each have very peculiar characteristics. Joe seemed very keen to protect his eyes, Steve apparently wanted to see as much as he could out of his helmet and Dan’s armour appears to bear the bullet marks of testing against close range shots. (n)Ed’s armour protected more of the body than the other suits however all four were very heavy and would have required considerable effort to get used to. The books imagery is generated by pulp printing and demonstrates the capacity of the technique which has only recently been developed by the artist. Pulp printing generates imagery within the sheet of handmade paper using only paper pulp" Tim Mosely
