Parsons Bookshop Auckland - more than a bookshop
Model of The HareDurer
Helen Parsons advises:
We now have in stock about 20 of the cast polymer model of this famous image. Yellow, white and black versions. $195.00 retail.
Roger has had a yellow Hare on his desk for the last few years. We bought it in Cologne when we were visiting the famous WalterKoenigBookshop. We had trouble going onto the plane because the scanners viewed it as a troublesome or illegal item. We’ve often put him in the window. He’s a great talking point. We’re very fond of him.
