The Good Word - a sad goodbye

With the upcoming closing down of TVNZ7 there is, sadly, no future for the tv book programme The Good Word so the set is being sold. If I had a barn I would buy it !

Wall Panels From The Set of The Good Word

sealed MDF kitset single set flats, Indian ink, charcoal, various paints and graphite pencil mediums.
The set is constructed in sections, the dimensions are: Wall A - two panels, each 3000mm x 2000mm (overall 3000mm x 4000mm) Wall B - four panels each 3000mm x 2000mm (overall 3000mm x 8000mm). Note: The first panel is without book shelf; the second panel has cut out window; the picture of the park is not included; the third and fourth panels do not include the spiral book shelf. Wall C - two panels 3000mm x 2400mm (overall 3000mm x 4800mm)



The set for the television literary series, The Good Word was designed as an art piece, mixing graffiti with images, plus the autographs of the many guests who have appeared on the show over its four series on TVNZ 7. The sealed MDF kitset single set flats were created by artist Virginia Leonard using Indian ink, charcoal, various paints and graphite pencil mediums.
