About this Item

Fine copy, mylar protected dj has minor rubbing. This is a scarce and beautiful volume from highly acclaimed photographer Robin Morrison and Booker-McConnell Prize winner Keri Hulme, a stunning partnership of words and pictures that pays tribute to Keri Hulme's 'homeplaces', three favored places of the heart in which the writer lives and works. On the West Coast, Okarito, a former goldrush settlement, with a barely double digit population, but teeming with wildlife; to the east, Moeraki, boulder strewn beaches, remains of ancient inhabitation and a modern fishing port; and on the southermost margin of New Zealand, the fiercely elemental Stewart Island. Part prose, part waiata, visually redolent - Homeplaces powerfully evokes the potency of New Zealand's South Island and its life. Gorgeous full page, all color photographs, map. Glossary. 131pp. Desirable! Fine copy, mylar protected dj has minor shelfwear on the corner tips, edges of spine - no tears or chips, creases or clipping.
