The Alexander Turnbull Library collects me!

Here are some photos taken in the Katherine Mansfield Reading Room at the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington New Zealand featuring eight of my artist’s books. The display will continue until the end of July.

The books are among a large collection (over 60) of my artist’s books recently acquired by the Alexander Turnbull Library. The Turnbull is a ‘library within a library’. Established in 1920 after Alexander Horsburgh Turnbull gifted his collection to the nation in 1918, its collections and services are now housed within the National Library building in Molesworth Street, Wellington.
