A message from Donald Kerr, Special Collections Librarian University of Otago
Peter Vangioni, owner-operator of Kowhai Press,
Christchurch, has printed text and images by Michael Morley, experimental
musician and visual artist, in the Otakou Press room, Central University
Library. XXXXXwords is fabulous. Not only has Peter done a great job, but the
University Bindery has done a superb job, binding it in black.
Although it might be beyond the usual financial spend of
a library, please do consider the purchase of this work, with nine lyrics
(poems) and 5 linocut images. It is printed in an edition of 100 copies only,
and cost $140.00 (incl gst). A image suite of A-Z has also been done; each
image signed by Morley. Each individual print cost $150.00
