PODCAST: Fairytales in Australia - feat. ILAB bookseller Douglas Stewart
Ida's fairies, elves and imps and the world they inhabited was beguiling - and eagerly consumed by society of the day. The baby princess Elizabeth was given a copy of one of her books. But as the century progressed the artist's popularity dwindled, as did the fantasy world she created. In this program, Ida Rentoul Outhwaite's work is reimagined and re-evaluated through 21st century eyes.
