An exhibition called ‘The Balloon of the Mind,’ after a poem by WB Yeats, opened at Special Collections at the UoA Gen Library yesterday. It’s on for 6 weeks and is open to the public. The exhibition includes three display cases. The first is about Yeats and his poetry, the second about Ian Donnelly, an NZ based book collector who collected and later donated a vast collection of first edition Irish Literature. The third case is all about Cuala Press. I was involved in curating the exhibition alongside Michele Leggott and Jo Birks. At MOTAT we printed a bookmark to go with the exhibition.
