cover design for the 2008 release of the revised
literacy classic 'Blood in the Dust' published by Network
Blood in the Dust is a graphological analysis of the handwriting of
Ned Kelly and Joseph Byrne. It contains three complete
psychological studies based on an adult sample
of Joe Byrne’s handwriting, and both an adolescent
and adult sample of Ned Kelly’s handwriting.
The analyses build a complete personality profile
of both men, including detailed descriptions of
their intellect and mental processes, emotionality,
physical attributes, social outreach, and sexuality.
Each analysis also discusses specific relationships
revealed in the handwriting, including the relationship
with parents, other relatives, friends and enemies.
This new edition contains a fully
revised 'Short History of the Kelly Gang' by Ironoutlaw.com's
Brad Webb. This new section is aimed to introduce
those new to the legend an overview of the life and
times of Ned, Joe, Dan and Steve. The book also contains
the complete collection of Kelly Letters including
Letter penned by Ned when he was only fifteen,
and the Sherritt
Letter written by Joe to test Aaron's loyalty.
'Angeline Baron takes the Kelly
story, and the analysis of two of its most intriguing
characters, into territory previously imagined
in other books on the subject but rarely explored
in such explicit, provocative and gripping detail.
A must-read for all Kelly scholars and anyone else
with even the faintest interest in arguably the
most powerful saga in Australian history.'
journalist and author
Angeline Baron began studies in graphology in 1983.
By that time, she already had a long-standing interest
in Australian History, specifically The Kelly Outbreak.
Her passion for these two subjects continued throughout
her busy working life. Angeline is a Radiographer,
currently working within the public health sector.
During her undergraduate training at RMIT University,
Angeline completed studies in developmental and behavioural
Psychology. She continues private study in Psychology,
specifically as it applies to her research in Graphology.
Angeline embarked on Blood
in the Dust in 2001. The analyses of the handwriting
samples of Joe Byrne and Ned Kelly were completed
over a 12-month period. Angeline’s exhaustive
analytical technique borrows from several disciplines
within the field of Graphology, but is not bound
by them. Her own method of analysis has been developed
and tested during the twenty years of research she
has undertaken in the field. In 2002, in her capacity
as Graphologist, Angeline appeared as guest speaker
at the Australia Day exposition of the Jerilderie
Letter held at the Old Melbourne Gaol. She is currently
researching her next book.
