Open Sky: A Homage to Ruth Dallas
Special Collections PR9641 D25 O6
Dunedin: Otakou Press
This limited edition of Ruth Dallas’s poems, Open Sky, was printed by Alan Loney in the Otakou Press Room as part of the 2008 Printer-in-Residence programme. Bound by the University of Otago Library Bindery, it is quarter-bound in bright yellow buckram (in this case, a woven coated book cloth) with blue cloth-covered boards. The front cover title is blocked in silver. The University of Otago Library Bindery was established in 1952 and was initially located in the basement of the Geology Department, near the Clocktower building. It is now situated at 109 Leith Street, where three qualified binders and three bindery assistants are employed.
