Printer in Launceston
Vast by Robyn Mayo

Vast by Robyn Mayo

Foot and Playsted are proud to announce the publication of Vast. Robyn Mayo’s third publication, a collection of prints and drawings, is a visual record of travels through Arnhem Land and the Gulf Country to the north, the central desert areas, and to the south Lake Eyre and the Flinders Ranges, between 1996 and 2013, that capture the geology, vegetation and history of this timeless land.

An exhibition Vast: The Landscape of Central Australia had its official opening at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery in April 2017 before touring to the Art Gallery of Ballarat and the Goulburn Regional Gallery, her childhood city.

Robin Mayo’s Vast is available for purchase here in a limited-edition hardcover volume.

For over 90 years Foot & Playsted Pty Ltd have boldly embraced innovation in print & communications.

In the shadow of the great depression, the year 1926 saw Jack Foot & William Playsted combine their experience and craftsmanship to provide a service to the people and businesses of Launceston, enabling the face of commerce to become professionally branded through print communication.

Our reputation for quality, service and advice is steeped in tradition and has been nurtured through the quest to continually improve and adapt to market and technological change.

Still a locally owned company, our range of products and services have changed with the times to meet market expectations. However we still uphold the values of pride and commitment, integrity and the importance of strong and long standing  relationships with our clients.

Living and working in the best state in the world, we strongly support our community and believe in the Tasmanian brand.
