“The mail boxes which stand perkily by Australian country roads might be regarded as a kind of folk art.  Or as an expression of Australian individualism.  Or as a symbol of human defiance against the monotony of inland landscapes.  Or simply as concrete examples of the wry, cock-eyed humour which is typically Australian.  The odd thing is that it took a newcomer to the country to see anything unusual about them.  In this book, Hans Breitgraf gives some examples of his researches into this Australian phenomenon.  His enjoyment in finding, photographing, and writing about Australian country mailboxes is evident on every page, and will be fully shared by the reader.”
