Geoff Hocking is an Australian author/designer/illustrator who has written, illustrated or designed more than 30 books for both and adult and children's readership.

He has written extensively on Australian themes: from bushrangers to Catholic rebels, gold-diggers to the story of the Australian flag.

Geoff's books are always lavishly illustrated with hundreds of old engravings, paintings, artworks and ephemera and have become definitive collections of visual representations of his themes. Easy to read with a fast-moving, often rollicking narrative, these books have been described as 'Australian history that is a joy to read'.
