Guest Post: University of Otago Printer in Residence 2011

John Denny, owner-operator of Puriri Press, Auckland, has now completed the hand-setting of poems by Peter Olds at the Otakou Press Room in the University Library. And Skew-Whiff, as it is called, looks fabulous. Peter Olds has made a point of photographing many samples of graffiti around Dunedin. The low-res image below is a collection of just some of the graffiti, which Denny has replicated in print. Eight images by local artist Kathryn Madill also accompany the poems.

The 'Centre-fold'

This hand-set, hand-inked edition is limited to only 100 copies. The cost is $250.00NZD. For further information, contact Donald Kerr, Special Collections Librarian, University of Otago.
