Timeless Land PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Timeless Land free pdf Timeless Land is a unique collaboration between three of New Zealand's most steadfast and individual talents: painter Grahame Sydney, poet Brian Turner and writer Owen Marshall. Much of their best and most enduring work has grown out of their deep attachment to, and familiarity with, the essence of the memorable landscapes of the Central South Island. This is the fourth edition of a much-loved and distinguished book. When first published in 1995, many of Grahame Sydney's paintings were being seen for the first time. A second book ,The Art of Grahame Sydney, has received much critical acclaim and it won the Reader's Choice Award and the 2000 Montana Book of the Year Award. A reprint of this popular book is timely, as that magnificent Central Otago landscape remains under threat from a proposed windfarm. Turner, Sydney, Anton Oliver et al won their battle in the Environment Court, which ruled that the landscape of Central Otago was too iconic to be thus modified, but now an Appeal by Meridian is being held. Former AB captain, former Fairfax head and Stop Project Hayes supporter David Kirk has written a preface for this new edition, and $10 from every book sold will go towards the Appeal Court costs.
