Contents: Sepik Diary is a sensitive and powerful record of a celebrated artist's 500 mile journey by dug-out canoe along the world's most artistic waterway, and one of its last frontiers... the Sepik River of Papua New Guinea, which is acknowledged as one of the great centers of primitive art.

The abstract expressionist paintings of Frank Hodgkinson have been shown in major museums in Europe and the United States. Though there is a sense of abstraction, the expression in this diary is vividly real. Through his fever of seeing and observing, the richness and diversity of place, people and living tradition are urgently transposed into a truly graphic experience. The prose and the sketches are both lyrical and descriptive, exposing an artist's vision of a culture so vital and so different from any Western aesthetic experience.
