Bill Hammond was an artist with a singular vision. One of the greats of Aotearoa’s art history, his paintings of bird-people occupying mythologised landscapes empty of human inhabitants have mesmerised audiences for three decades. This book shows the artist at his finest. Features: • An exclusive interview between the legendary Bill Hammond and fellow artist Tony de Lautour. • Engaging, readable texts by Rachael King, Nic Low, Paul Scofield, Ariana Tikao and Peter Vangioni. • Huge images and details of some of Hammond’s finest paintings. • Responses to Hammond’s practice by artists including Fiona Pardington, Marlon Williams and Shane Cotton among others. Produced by the same team who made Bill Hammond: Jingle Jangle Morning, which won Best Illustrated Book at the New Zealand Book Awards, and Best Book at the Publishers Association Book Awards.
