The town of Quilpie, located in the channel country in southern Queensland, 1000kms west of Brisbane, celebrated its centenary in 2017. To mark the occasion, the Quilpie Shire commissioned Ten Bag Press to produce a coffee table-style book. Publisher Adam McNicol, photographer Andrew Chapman and designer Phil Campbell travelled to Quilpie in May 2016 and spent a week documenting life in the town and its surrounding district. The resultant book featured some typically brilliant photographs from Chapman, a number of great historical pictures from the Quilpie Shire’s impressive collection, an essay by a local historian and Campbell’s renowned design work. The book can still be purchased from the Quilpie Shire.
