In 2008, when Nina Stanton, then Director of The Johnston Collection, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, she wrote her memoir linking her life to objects in the Collection. In early 2009, knowing she was running out of time she asked Mary Ryllis Clark to finish the book by placing the objects in their cultural and social context .

MARY RYLLIS CLARK’S commissioned books include Forty Years – A History of the National Trust in Victoria (1996), Timbertop - Celebrating 50 Years (2003) and Loreto in Australia (2009). Her latest book, A Tear in the Glass – Nina Stanton’s Life Journey through the Fine and Decorative Arts, was published in 2018.
