'The Melbourne Book - A History of Now' first published in 2003, has just enjoyed its third major update. This new fourth edition features a new cover design (hard cover), new chapters, new tales from Melbourne's short but amazing history, and its ancient Indigenous pre-history. New tales of Melbourne's physical, cultural, architectural, historical and mythical features. New photographs of this ever-changing city. Over 700 photos, over 60 tales of the city. The must-have Melburnian's manual; it's the world's most liveable book. It's all home grown, homemade, indie publishing, and made with love. This celebrates the very qualities that make Melbourne the world's most livable city: Opportunity, Sanctuary, Passion and Beauty. Follow Maree Coote around the city for a journey that will reveal new meaning to those who live here, and make those visiting wish they lived here too.
