Summary Fifty years after its first publication, Robin Boyd's bestselling The Australian Ugliness remains the definitive statement on how we live and think in the environments we create for ourselves. In it, Boyd rallied against Australia's promotion of ornament, decorative approach to design and slavish imitation of all things American.
