Pressed Letters: Fine Printing in New Zealand Since 1975 opened yesterday at the Central Library Peterborough
and it will be exhibited until 23 September 2012
During the 1970s traditional techniques of letterpress printing
were replaced with modern digital technologies.
However, many printers worldwide have continued to use 'obsolete' methods of printing,
establishing private presses and producing high-quality, hand-made books.
This exhibition highlights the collaborative ethic that often exists between poets, artists and printers.
Featuring titles from Joanna Margaret Paul, Ian Wedde, Bill Manhire, Ralph Hotere,
Jenny Bornholdt, Alan Loney, Max Gimblett, Leo Bensemann, Bill Sutton, Michelle Leggot,
Gretchen Albrecht, Gregory O'Brien, Tara McLeod and Brendan O'Brien.
So if you are in Christchurch it would be worth a visit
