comma dot dogma Tom Kreisler Umbrella Design NZ$60 AU$65

This remarkable art book was published in March this year to coincide with the Tom Kreisler exhibition at New Plymouth's Govett-Brewster Art Gallery but it has only just come to my notice so I hasten to bring it to the attention of others.

It displays wonderfully the creativity of an inspiring artist and includes a chronology of his life illustrated with b&w pics, along with words from John Maynard, Cheryll Sotheran, John Hurrell, Wystan Curnow, Deborah Cain, and Aaron Kreisler.

Pic shows opening of exhibition. A tour of the exhibition is being planned and details will be available shortly.

One of the major aspects of this project was setting up a searchable website of the artists work - where visitors can order the book (including booksellers who will receive trade discount). Pic below from the website home page.

The publisher, Jessica Gommers, of Umbrella Design, can be reached at P.O.Box 6701, Marion Square, Wellington.
