Selected art catalogues
Art All Magazine
A quarterly-produced magazine for supporters of Artists Alliance, allowing them to have their voice in a clear and easy to read format, flexible enough to allow for long and short essays. Designed, proofread and print-managed by Verso Visual.
An art catalogue produced in collaboration with Nuala Gregory at the time of her exhibition – *Nuala Gregory: Exploded View* at the Gus Fisher Gallery, The University of Auckland, 4 June – 17 July 2010. Twenty-four full colour images are reproduced, along with two essays. The book is designed to have a close relationship with the exhibited work – this is represented most strongly in the intense blues of the cover and vibrant yellow end papers. Versovisual worked closely with Soar Print over the production of this book.

Human Rights & Water
A discussion paper designed for the Human Rights Commission in 2012 to promote the human rights implications of water within New Zealand. The document features an image by Criag Potton on the cover, a series of water backgrounds drawn from Versovisual’s photographic archive, and quotations from a number of New Zealand poets and writers.
From Prague to Auckland
From Prague to Auckland: An art catalogue designed and produced for the exhibition *From Prague to Auckland: The Photography of Frank Hofmann (1916-1989)* curated by Leonard Bell at the Gus Fisher Gallery, 26 August to 29 October 2011. The book features 17 black and white images (the subtle variety of warm and cool tones present in Hofmann’s photographs is retained in these) and two essays. The book was printed using a print-on-demand process enabling a short run of 150 to be printed for the exhibition, and further copies to be ordered as required.
Studio Teaching Symposium
A book and promotional material produced for the National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries (NICAI)’s symposium on studio pedagogy. The book features thirteen essays - each has been assigned its own colour with its title page, being a variation of the cover concept of a shifting rectangular ‘studio’ shape within an area of solid colour. Reversed out of the shape are selected quotations from the essay. Printed using Blurb’s ‘print-on-demand’ process enabling copies to be ordered online as required.
