Artists have long been interested in book-making as a creative practice, just as self-publishing has been a strategy to have one's voice heard.

Join Zoë Colling and Renée Orr in a hands-on exploration of how private press meets DIY publishing in Auckland Libraries’ printed heritage collections, as they delve into their connections and divergences as heritage items – asking what they communicate as aesthetic objects and social documents.

Are you interested in family and local history? Or about the history of New Zealand? Then come along to one of our fortnightly HeritageTalks. Experts in specialised fields deliver these talks and provide insight into our histories.

HeritageTalks take place at Whare Wānanga, Level 2, Central City Library, unless otherwise stated.
