Ko te Korero te Kai a te Rangatira
(Words are the Food of Chiefs)

monograph1_580px

An artist monograph created in support of an exhibition of the same name at 
'The Modern Pantry' in London, 2012. The booklet includes artworks from this series, accompanied by an essay by Trish Stevenson, and an artist interview. The monograph was printed and bound by Henningham Family Press. Text pages are in full colour HP indigo prints on 100gsm paper; covers foil blocked and screenprinted on Fedrigoni 290gsm paper; hand-bound and singer sewn. Produced in a limited edition of 50, artist stamped. Henningham Press did an exquisite job on the binding and finishing, which includes an innovative 'blind' singer sewing technique on the spine, which sits beautifully with the short-sized, whakairo (wood carving) cover wrap. Thanks to Trish Stevenson, Karl and Kateia Burrows and Arte Toi who all provided the inspiration for this series of work, and played a significant part in bringing about the exhibition.
