Ships in 2-3 weeks

Kim Walvisch with Foreword by Kaz Cooke.

Inspired by the successful Instagram account @sublurb, The Burbs captures design quirks and the charming icons of Australian suburbs: brick veneer, mid-century gems, decorative wrought iron, lovingly tendered topiary and shop signs of a time gone by.

Kim Walvisch has been steadfastly documenting Melbourne suburbia for the past five years. Having taken photos in more than 100 suburbs, she has created a nostalgic archive of how things looked before the takeover of development.

Colour photographs throughout
