In Australian Notebooks, Betty Churcher revisits some of the artworks she most cherishes-a seminal Picasso, early works of the Heidelberg School, a striking portrait by Lucian Freud-and invites us to look afresh at the treasures that can be found in Australian galleries. Taking in the glorious work of Australian artists such as John Olsen, Arthur Boyd and Sidney Nolan, as well as masterpieces by Paul Cezanne, Henri Matisse and Giambattista Tiepolo, through her own accomplished sketches Betty draws out the particular charm and context of each piece. Interwoven with extraordinary stories-one canvas flew off the back of a truck on the Pacific Highway- another was imported from Imperial Russia, paid for with a briefcase full of cash-Betty's engaging insights bring the artworks to life. With gorgeous full-colour reproductions, this is a book to turn to again and again for inspiration, solace and delight.

    As for which builder to use, the best way to go about choosing is to find the website builder that you enjoy using, as all of them are different from one another in terms of user interface and tools (to a certain extent). But I'd suggest taking a look at Squarespace and Wix to get started as they have some pretty good looking and creative templates.
