The Quaint, The Quirky and The Forgotten - a book not just about houses but buildings and other structures, with a hint of sustainability placed in the message. With unique Australian light-hearted narrative and familiar personal accounts, this leaves the content open to the imagination of the reader. In appreciation of architecture, the Quaint brings this to light with many old quaint buildings just grasping on to today, yearning for a new lease on life. A section on Quirky is included for descriptive purposes, when things aren't quaint; also because we need quirky to save us from becoming somewhat boring. Lastly, but definitely not least, is the Forgotten. It happens to be all of the forgotten everywhere that was the precursor for this subject matter. This book highlights what is not often thought about and brings to life the story of buildings, not opulent mansions but the ordinary multitude; the many this colony was built with.
