Abstract

More often than not, private press productions are a labour of love. In creating her book of poems, Judith Haswell, an Auckland poet (and librarian), used a chopstick and a broken razor blade to cut the text in to large white rubber erasers (one is on display). She then used a small press and stamped the poems on to paper, adding colour by hand. One hundred copies were printed; an effort that took three years. Haswell also supplied the calico bag.
