“The Dreamtime is one of the greatest Australian publishing successes of recent years.  The first edition was published in 1965, and five impressions have been issued to meet the constant demand.  So many people asked for larger copies of the illustrations that four of Ainslie Roberts’ paintings were printed in full-size reproductions and have been eagerly sought after.
The original concept of the paintings was developed by an association between Ainslie Roberts and Charles Mountford.  Mr Roberts had made extensive painting tours through remote outback regions, and Mr Mountford, of course, is well known for his anthropological work among the Aboriginal peoples.”
