The Illustrated Burra Charter: how to buy it online

Friday 1 November 2013

The Illustrated Burra Charter: good practice for heritage places has been widely accepted, often cited, and sometimes com­men­ded. But, sadly, the book has never been widely promoted or distributed.

It is hard to find a copy for sale in a book­shop or on the web. I have had quite a few enquiries from people who want­ed to buy one, but who couldn’t find a convenient source. In the past I have sent those people to the Australia ICOMOS website, where the online ordering process is a reminder of life before amazon.com.

I am very pleased to see that the Australian Council of National Trusts has set up an online shop which offers the Illustrated Burra Charter. At last, you can order the book online, pay with a credit card, and have the book delivered by mail.

open book

Postscript, 11 November 2013: Fishpond and United Campus Bookshops offer the book too.
