A few good books on Australian Aboriginal art:

Modern Art - Ancient Icon published by The World Bank Art Society

Tjarany Roughtail pubished by Magabala Books ( This received The Children's
Book Council of Australia Eve Pownail Award) ISBN 1-875641-30-0

The above books are/were published in Australia. They are great books and
I wouldn't be surprised if you couldn't get them through the internet or
ordering from a Barnes & Noble.

There is a marvelous children's book (my middle school students love for me
to read this story to them while they are working on their aboriginal
projects) which tells a story of John Jagamarra, a half-white Aboriginal
and how he is taken from his home and his mother. WARNING - Some students
become quite upset and I have let other teachers read this book and they
have been upset with me for not warning them about how gut wrenching this
story is for mothers.

The book is, The Burnt Stick, by Anthony Hill, illustrated by Mark Sofilas,
published in the U.S. byHoughton Mifflin Co., Boston, New York.
ISBN 0-395-73974-8
The illustrations are done in charcoal (a burnt stick). Great book
