Here’s a message and some interesting links from Donald Kerr at Otago University about the successful completion of this year’s Printer in Residence:
Peter Vangioni, owner-operator of Kowhai Press, Christchurch, has printed text and images by Michael Morley, experimental musician and visual artist, in the Otakou Press room, Central University Library. XXXXXwords is fabulous. Not only has Peter done a great job, but the University Bindery has done a superb job, binding it in black.
Although it might be beyond the usual financial spend of a library, please do consider the purchase of this work, with nine lyrics (poems) and 5 linocut images. It is printed in an edition of 100 copies only, and cost $140.00 (incl gst). A image suite of A-Z has also been done; each image signed by Morley. Each individual print cost $150.00
