'MY BELOVED HACKNEYED - Paintings and Poetry'

Liz Maw - Distributed by Craig Potton - $64.95

Laminated slip case with linen covered book, full colour plates with smaller internal pages of poetry.

Over the years many artists have published artist's books, especially among the artist photographer community. Now Liz Maw has self-published My Beloved Hackneyed, a most impressive and beautifully packaged volume featuring her own stunning, sometimes almost erotic art, along with her verse.

I guess with all the new technologies now available we can expect to see more self publishing. This is a fine example. Available at Parsons Bookshop, Auckland and wherever fine books are sold.

Liz Maw has an impressive website where you can see a great selection of her art. It is worth a look.
