Old maps put the art in cartography The national library's Trove digital service has been highlighting quirky old maps of the continent, starting with a 1920s graphic dividing the country up into the sheep haves and have-nots. Artist Judy Horacek, who illustrated Mem Fox's children's classic Where is the Green Sheep?, approved of the idea. For the record, Meat and Livestock Australia has this more modern take on the old sheep map, which is impressively precise — who knew there were only 167 head of sheep in the Northern Territory? — but not as charming.

Jonathan Klein: Photos that changed the world In my industry,we believe that images can change the world.Okay, we're naive, we're bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.The truth is that we know that theimages themselves don't change the world,but we're also aware that, since the beginning of photography,images have provoked reactions in people,and those reactions have caused change to happen. So let's begin with a group of images.I'd be extremely surprisedif you didn't recognize many or most of them.They're best described as iconic:so iconic, perhaps, they're cliches.In fact, they're so well-knownthat you might even recognize themin a slightly or somewhat different form. (Laughter) Well, I think what is far worseis man's destructive power over man.Samuel Pisar, an Auschwitz survivor, said,and I'll quote him,"The Holocaust teaches us that nature,even in its cruelest moments,is benign in comparison with man,when he loses his moral compass and his reason." And thank you to all the photographers. (Applause)
