James Joyce


Selections from the Odyssey, Ulysses. Auckland: The Pear Tree Press, 1997. Stk. + PR 6019 09 U42 1997.

With a number of blocks, and wooden and metal types at his disposal, Tara McLeod, owner-operator of The Pear Tree Press, Auckland, playfully re-constructed excerpts from James Joyce’s Ulysses. McLeod also binds the books he prints and does the illustrations, in this case a woodcut of Irishman Joyce. McLeod is regarded by many as the best limited edition book maker in the country and his works are now becoming collectible. This edition, of which this is no.15 of 20, has sold out.
