            A beautiful and important book about the remarkable collaboration between the modernist architect James Hackshaw (a member, for a time, of the famous Group Architects), the painter Colin McCahon and the then young sculptor Paul Dibble on 14 New Zealand buildings - from churches ...to school halls. Drawing on interviews with James Hackshaw before his death and on the McCahon archive, this book brings into the light a body of work and a collaboration that has been little known or examined, even by old McCahon hands. Richly illustrated with Hackshaw's plans, McCahon's drawings, letters and journal entries, and contemporary images of the surviving buildings and artworks, and with expert essays by Peter Simpson, Julia Gatley and Peter Shaw.

            Who Am I? is a question at the centre of what it is to be human and for artist Kelcy Taratoa (Ngai Te Rangi, Ngati Ranginui, Ngati Raukawa) it has formed the sub-ject of his painting for two decades. Kelcy Taratoa: Who Am I ?... Episode 001 is a bilingual English and Te Reo publi...cation written by Warren Feeney and translated by Heni Jacob (Ngati Raukawa). It traverses the artist's life from growing up in the suburbs of Levin to Te Haka a Te Tupere, the artist's wharenui at Rangiwaea marae in Tauranga Harbour. Through his paintings he contends that contemporary technology's virtual realities and appetite for destruction and distraction is undermining our humanity and experience of the world. Yet painting, that most ancient means of visual communication, is something that continues to remind us of our humanness.
