Beauty and the book – Christchurch Art Gallery exhibition at Central Library Peterborough

Fernbank Studio: away past elsewhereFernbank Studio: Away Past Elsewhere is a Christchurch Art Gallery exhibition at our Central Library Peterborough. It is on until 23 September.  Fernbank Studio is a private press run by printer and book maker  Brendan O’Brien in Wellington.  I popped in this week and enjoyed the exquisite and sometimes earthy works created by the combination of the art of poets, artists, and printer.

There is work on show from Colin McCahon, Gregory O’Brien, Bill Manhire, Jenny Bornholdt, Joanna Margaret Paul, and Kate Camp.

Here are some pictures, but seeing them in person is best as there is nothing like getting close up and seeing the indentation of the type on the page (yes I am a typophile …) Oh and there are some gorgeous booklets and bookmarks to be had too (Christchurch Art Gallery has the best looking swag).
