Last night Parsons Bookshop in Auckland launched this memoir which is
‘the flowing intermesh of typography, ink-and-paper, Renaissance cultural history and deeply personal hands-on knowledge’.
‘It is about the printing of an exquisite book, an object in which every stage of craftsmanship has been scrupulously considered’.
‘Alan Loney is a beautiful stylist – lucid and compelling He takes us into the heart of that question: How is a book actually made?’
Quotes from Chris Wallace-Crabbe
‘Alan Loney’s work has always been at the cutting edge of New Zealand’s place in world literature. He is a poet of international stature, whose mastery has become a resource for us all’.
Quote from Robert Creeley
Alan Loney - a fine New Zealand poet, writer, printer and until recently Honorary Fellow at the University of Melbourne’s Australian Centre.
