Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name at Te Uru, Parallel Universe: The Art and Design of Roy Good
is a generously illustrated book, authored by Ed Hanfling with contributions by Andrew Paul Wood and Andrew Clifford.Parallel Universe
celebrates the 50-year parallel careers of Roy Good as both a designer and painter. It draws attention to Good’s pioneering work for New Zealand television from the late 1960s, alongside his early forays into modernist abstract painting, as well as featuring paintings from the last decade – a highly productive period of renewed energy and innovation. The book and exhibition highlight Good’s continuing commitment to modernism and the Bauhaus ideals that link art, architecture and design as related aesthetic endeavours.Parallel Universe
features over 100 colour plates of Good's art and design. Printed with vegetable-based inks on certified FSC paper stocks, section-sewn and glued with blind embossed cover features. Designed by Te Uru's Julia Gamble Vale.
