Christian Waller, nee Yandell (1875-1956) commenced art study aged 15 years at the National Gallery School in Melbourne. She married Napier Waller in 1915 and they both became interested in the linocut as a medium for their distinctive designs. They also created stained glass windows and mosaics. Christian Waller established the Golden Arrow Press in Melbourne in 1932. This book was originally planned in 1932 as the second publication of the Press in an edition of 150 copies, but only one copy was completed. Text and illustrations have been printed from lithographic plates and this facsimile has been produced by photo-lithography.
