Abstract

This large landscape private press book, Like a Tree, is a rare book, printed in 1993 in a limited edition of only 8 copies. It was a collaborative affair, between Tara McLeod, owner-operator of Pear Tree Press; John Mitchell, artist, printmaker and papermaker; and Judith Haswell, a librarian at Auckland University. Haswell wrote the poem and supplied the yellow calico cover; Mitchell made the paper from composite materials including banana skins; and McLeod performed his usual magic on the printing and layout. The work was donated to Special Collections by Judith Haswell.
