We hear from Lynne Kelly and Margo Neale about their book Design: Songlines. Lynne Kelly is a science writer whose field of research is the memory methods used by those who depended on their memories for knowledge. Margo Neale is the head of the Centre for Indigenous Knowledges, senior Indigenous curator, and principal adviser to the director of the National Museum of Australia. The authors share understandings of how these vast stores of Indigenous traditional knowledge were encoded through song, story, art, dance and ceremony, rather than simply recorded in writing. Songlines: The Power and Promise is the first of six books in Thames & Hudson Australia's First Knowledge series, all edited by Margo Neale. //
