  • Notes:
    Gert Sellheim was one of the earliest designers commissioned by the Australian National Travel Association (ANTA) to produce designs for Australian travel posters. Established in 1929, ANTA aspired to attract overseas visitors to Australia by displaying artist-designed posters in its London, San Francisco and Bombay offices (directed at the British serving in India)...’Corroboree Australia’ illustrates the designer Gert Sellheim’s strikingly modernist incorporation, and early reference to the art and culture of Aboriginal Australia as a significant aspect of Australian culture and identity. His most renowned design is Qantas Airlines’ distinctive flying kangaroo logo.
