The exhibition Steamer is a tribute to Lake Wakatipu's TSS Earnslaw and her close family of working steamers.
The book has 71 duotone plates and an essay by yours truely about working aboard as a schoolboy. The book was printed in Wellington and confirms my belief that local printers can produce top-class art books. It is a limited edition of 100 books signed and numbered.
The book Steamer is for sale at Photospace Gallery for $45.00.
The exhibition opening will feature two craft beers made in the Fortification Road Brewery: Earnslaw Dark - a sweet dark ale with toffee characteristics lightly hopped Stoker Stout - a dry oatmeal stout with medium hop.
