AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The "imago" is the final and perfect stage of an insect after all its metamorphoses. Imago is a magazine envisaged as a channel for writing largely by Queenslanders, or about life in Queensland, but not confined to this. It aims to reflect some of the tensions and contrasts within Queensland and the distinctive outlooks of its inhabitants.
