Daniel Knorr’s artist’s book ‘Pukapuka Tohunga Mahi Toi’ involves a process of mapping the city in which Knorr collected pieces of rubbish on the street. This material was interleaved into the blank pages of each book and pressed by a 200-ton press, embossing the objects into the paper. Each book sets out to respond to local concerns and histories and, for this reason, the text for the New Zealand version is entirely in Maori. The cover the artist used the typeface Churchward Maori, designed by New Zealand type designer Joseph Churchward. The book includes a video which documents the process of making the work.
