Prof John Maynard's book, 'True Light and Shade' is based on the incredible paintings by convict artist Joseph Lycett (See cover photo above). Lycett captured many intimate landscapes featuring the First Nations peoples lives during the settlement of New South Wales, especially within the vicinity of Newcastle.
