Poetry Shelf Lounge: MUP’s online launch of Lloyd Jones and artist Euan Macleod’s High Wire

 

 

 

 

 

 

High Wire brings together Booker finalist writer Lloyd Jones and artist Euan Macleod. It is the first in the new kōrero series of a series of ‘picture books written and made for grown-ups’ and designed to showcase leading New Zealand writers and artists working together in a collaborative and dynamic way.

In High Wire the narrators playfully set out across the Tasman, literally on a high wire. Macleod’s striking drawings explore notions of home, and depict homeward thoughts and dreams. High Wire also enters a metaphysical place where art is made, a place where any ambitious art-making enterprise requires its participants to hold their nerve and not look down.

It’s a beautifully considered small book which richly rewards the reader and stretches the notion of what the book can do.

It’s a hardback and $45.
