Barbara Huia Kingi has written an incredible account of her memoirs relating to her growing up and working life in the Manawatu and beyond. Barbara asked me to help with the publishing of this amazing book (132 pages, 32 pages of photographs). Here the pages are laid out ready for collation. I have selected an ISBN number from the parcel that I have for Homeprint and printed the title page including this number. One copy of the book will go to the Rare Book collection of the Alexander Turnbull Library.
Married to Allison for 45 years, 3 sons, David, Russell and Paul. I have been primary school teaching in New Zealand for 32 years and for the last 11 years have been developing a Book Art Studio, Library, Art Gallery and substantial warehouse of printmaking equipment and materials. We have a Letterpress Printing and Bookbinding Museum that is a working collection. I have invented an A4 relief printing press and an A3 hydraulic printing press that I manufacture and sell throughout New Zealand with sales into 5 countries overseas. Allison and I have written, illustrated, set, printed, bound and published over 100 titles of artist books.
