Too often art books are dense and inaccessible. 101 Works of Art is immediately engaging with large images, big details and conversational texts. Written to feel as if the reader is standing with the curator in front of the painting, texts are short, personal and insightful. Learn how an artwork was made, what inspired the artist, the secrets behind the frame. See up close the movement of the painter’s brushstrokes, the glinting surface of a glass sculpture the almost-hidden detail of a Dutch master. This large, beautifully presented book showcases 101 treasures from its collection – paintings, drawings, sculpture, film and photographs that stand out in a line-up of New Zealand’s most significant collected works. Coloured page edges and ribbons match the colours within. And like an origami cherry on top, the patchwork dust jacket opens out then folds back on itself to make a second dust jacket. Designed by award-winning artist and designer Aaron Meehre, 101 was shortlisted for Best Illustrated book and won Best Cover at the 2016 PANZ awards.
