We are devastated by the news that #RodOram has died in a cycling accident. Rod had just signed a publishing agreement with us & we were awaiting his manuscript with huge excitement. Rod was a much-needed voice of sanity and wisdom. We are weeping for his family and all Aotearoa.
Congratulations to our author Penny Jackson, art-crime sleuth extraordinaire, for today’s much-deserved honour. Penny is an absolute pioneer in researching and exposing NZ’s hidden art crimes. #artcrimenz
