A contemporary artist and graphic designer, a poet and prose writer, Max Robinson had a sixty-plus year career in the UK and Australia. Renowned for his design work on numerous record covers for World Record Club and his contribution on the decimal currency council with Gordon Andrews and Harry Williamson, Max was also the designer of Australia’s first ten-dollar note.
In this conversation Max reflects on his early friendship and work with Barry Humphries in Melbourne, and later in London. He also recalls encounters with many notable friends such as Mimmo Cozzolino, Gordon Andrews, Harry Williamson, Brian Sadgrove, Morris Lurie, Max Forbes, Clem Meadmore, Jimmy Haughton James and Peter Atkins.
