Paired with Susan Maushart's witty and illuminating text, these images are by turns whimsical, meditative and transgressive, and have all the intoxicating freshness of a basket of sun-dried sheets. Inspired by the obsession of one of Australia's finest photographers and teamed with an internationally acclaimed author who has finally come to terms with our passion for the clothesline.

This book not only notices clotheslines. It showcases them; contemplates them; celebrates them; drags them from the back blocks to centre stage, to take their rightful place in the sun. Retro-kitschy-cult-classic crossed with post-feminist whimsy wedded to an unimpeachable aesthetic.
