Cold comfort

This small image of the cover of the book slated for Venice has arrived at overthenet. The accompanying email explains that the image is a rough approximation of the cover – sounds like an identikit picture. If anyone has an original we’d be happy to share it with you all. The book’s title Speculation (def. Taking large risks, especially with respect to trying to predict the future) may refer to the absence from the book of most of the artists previously representing New Zealand at Venice. We're understand Peter Robinson's (2001) there, but et al. (2005), Jacqueline Fraser (2001) and Mike Stevenson (2003) are not.
