'Blood, Sweat and the Sea'

A biographical work on the inimitable John Muir, this 416 page coffee table book details the trials and tribulations of one of Tasmania's true captains of industry. Written by Walkley award winning local journalist Mike Swinson and published by Forty South, the book is available in two editions, both beautifully case-bound and printed in full colour throughout. 


All book design, layout and project management was completed by SAMBATIKI. Over thirty months, more than 5,000 emails, some 40-odd anecdotes and interviews from around the globe, and half a terabyte of images and information needed to be managed and sorted.

'One Tough Bastard'

Another great book about a pioneering Tasmanian, Mike Wilson. You might know his name from the iconic Tasmanian business Granny Wilson's Bakery, or you might even know him as Councillor Mike Wilson, of Huon valley Council fame. Either way, he's a local bloke who's lived a big and very interesting life. 

All book layout, as well as cover design and photography, was completed by SAMBATIKI, and production was co-ordinated with local author Mike Swinson
