The book was displayed as part of the "Ern Malley: The Hoax and Beyond" exhibition at the Heide Museum, Victoria in 2009.

Emma Kidd brings intriguing characters to life in her original artworks, goccos, postcards & prints. She has an incredible portfolio and we are thrilled to offer a selection of her works for sale. In many of her pieces, we see portraits of monsters - curious & playful, strange & shy. At other times, we see characters in their environments - different imaginings of the natural world, or darker, more sinister spaces where twisted tales are unfolding.
Emma Kidd is an Australian artist, illustrator, printmaker, photographer who spends most of my time creating things. The name "benconservato" refers to "well preserved" in Italian.
