            The first book in twenty-five years from Jerry Seinfeld features his best work across five decades in comedy. Since his first performance at the legendary New York nightclub Catch a Rising Star as a twenty-one-year-old student in autumn of 1975, Jerry Seinfeld has written his own... material and saved everything. Whenever I came up with a funny bit, whether it happened on a stage, in a conversation, or working it out on my preferred canvas - the big yellow legal pad - I kept it in one of those old-school accordion folders, Seinfeld writes. So I have everything I thought was worth saving from forty-five years of hacking away at this for all I was worth. For this book, Jerry Seinfeld has selected his favourite material, organised decade by decade. In page after hilarious page, one brilliantly crafted observation after another, readers will witness the evolution of one of the great comedians of our time and gain new insights into the thrilling but unforgiving art of writing stand-up comedy.

            Graham Bennett: Around Every Circle
              

            Graham Bennett: Around Every Circle (Hardback, Illustrated edition)

            Internationally recognised Graham Bennett is best known in Aotearoa New Zealand for the soaring Reasons for Voyaging outside Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna Waiwhetu, the Tribute to Firefighters using steel from the World Trade Center ruins, and major commissions at Gibbs Farm a...nd at Connells Bay Waiheke Island. Especially prominent in Japan, he has also exhibited widely elsewhere: Korea, Hong Kong, New York, Spain and Australia. His works have featured on the cover of international sculpture publications. Bennett's intricate sculptures speak not only to human invention, the history of voyaging, the need to find balance in our activities and the realities of science, but also the urgency of recognizing and responding to the warning signs of a growing global environmental catastrophe. Bennett's striking sculptures sit atop an extensive and varied art practice embedded in drawing, printmaking, photography. He distils complex ideas by experimenting with scales that range from intimate to monumental, and calls on a variety of media and contemporary technologies. Three major essays by accomplished writers and five elegant image sequences give insight into the nature of his thinking and process, firmly based in Aotearoa New Zealand yet spanning the globe and half a century. Bennett adds personal insights in an absorbing behind-the-scenes account of the intertwining of art and life, ever changing, turning, moving forward.
