Otakou Press Artist in Residence

To celebrate the 150 year anniversary of the University of Otago in 2019, Otakou Press connected with Lynn Jenner who compiled a number of letters to the editor of the Otago Daily Times written by Charles Brasch. As a significant figure associated with the University, Brasch’s letters raised many concerns, among them the architecture of the University’s buildings and the looming proposal for construction of the Aramoana aluminium smelter.

The letterpress publication was set and printed by Dr John Holmes and included relief printed illustrations in an edition of 100 copies. See the University article here, the ODT article here and a Dunedin City of Literature article here.
