    Title: Poroporoaki / to the Lord My God: Weaving the Via Delarosa
    Author: GILDEA ANAHERA

    Poroporoaki is, as the subtitle suggests, a response to Colin McCahon’s paintings that are, in turn a response to the death of poet James K. Baxter. In this rich poem up-and-coming writer Anahera Gildea takes these threads and weaves them into a vivid Maori cultural context. The result is powerful, emotional and beautiful.

    This exquisitely produced hand-bound book is available in a first edition of 150 hand-numbered copies. It is bound with hemp and flax-linen thread, and features a fly-leaf insert of hand-made harakeke (New Zealand flax) paper.

    Anahera Gildea (Ngati Raukawa-ki-Te-Tonga, Kai Tahu, Te Ati Awa, Ngati Toa, Ngai Te Rangi) is a Wellington-based writer who has had her poems and short stories published in a variety of journals. She recently completed the Masters of Creative Writing at Victoria University of Wellington and is currently finishing her first novel.
