Since he died there have been many books about Sir Don Bradman, easily the greatest batsman there has ever been.
He finished with a Test batting average of 99.94 more than 30 runs per innings ahead of the rest as Australia dominated world cricket in the ’30s and ’40s.
But this Bradman book is different from all the others. There are 240 pages of the paintings of him by Brian Clinton that hang in Bradman’s official museum at Bowral, his home ground.
The text is by Museum Director Richard Mulvaney with a foreword by Richie Benaud, the former Australian captain and master commentator.
Handsomely bound in green leather with gold lettering this Bradman book will be treasured as a work of art in itself.
Beautifully produced... packed with superb pencil and charcoal drawings and working drawings by Brian Clinton, who has captured almost every aspect of Bradman’s life in remarkable detail and accuracy... book cuts no corners in quality, is worth every penny
