On Friday 24th June my second architecture book ‘70/80/90 Iconic Australian Houses’ (published by Murdoch Books) is shipped to China to be printed, ready for sale in October. It has been a long time in the coming - two and a half years to be precise - but feels worth all the effort. Since I stepped aside as editor of Inside Out magazine this time last year (after 10 years) the book has been a great creative outlet. The architects and home owners that said yes to be included in the book make it truly special. The first book ‘50/60/70 Iconic Australian Houses’ published in 2007 continues to be steady seller confirming the interest Australians have in this field.

As Group Editorial Director of News Magazines we are in the throws of taking  our successful print brands into the digital space and so I thought it high time I had a tumblr. I hope you like what you see.  Karen
