With my gratitude to Creative New Zealand for their assistance.

Leather bound, with flyleaves of either handmade harakeke (NZ flax) paper, or paper handmade and handprinted in Nepal.
Each with small treasures embedded in the cover.
Price, including postage, is NZ$350 or US$220, or €200, or £180 - that includes postage to those different countries.

I was posting images of 5 new books each Sunday for 3 months.
Now the last 15 are here completing the entire project, 100 books.
to coincide with the opening of the exhibition of assemblages Philosophy of the Found
by Carl Fairweather and Dale Copeland, both of New Zealand.

Click here to see the exhibition on the Virtual Tart website.. (The exhibition was to have included work by Robert Villamagna of West Virginia, USA,
but Robert became very ill with the covid-10 virus and had to pull out. We wish him well as he recovers.)

Silly me.
So engrossed with the binding and the covers, I didn't give you any indication of what's inside!
80 pages, full colour, over 100 of my artworks ... mostly assemblage, some collage. And the associated description, rant, blather.
Call it what you will - my thoughts.
Here are 3 snapshots from inside the book:


And, for those who asked, these page images enlarge so the text is legible.      And, just for a laugh, working conditions at the Puniho Press.
Mask not for a virus but for the glue smell.

 

Dale's studio can be found on Surf Highway, Taranaki, New Zealand

Her art work can be seen on her own site at dalecopeland.co.nz
and also on the Virtual TART site at tart.co.nz
