Ockham 2024 Longlist Booksellers Aotearoa NZ Award for Illustrated Non Fiction

Painter, printmaker, teacher, writer and ornithologist, Don Binney (1940-2012) was a mercurial presence on the New Zealand cultural scene from the time of his meteoric rise to fame in the early 1960s. His unmistakable, stylised depictions of birds have come to define an era in the development of the nation’s art.

Don Binney: Flight Path follows the painter from Te Henga / Bethells Beach – his artistic turangawaewae – through his years of wandering not only the length of Aotearoa but as far afield as Latin America and Europe. Drawing extensively on Binney’s letters, journals and other writings, award-winning author and curator Gregory O’Brien takes us into the world of this gifted but paradoxical artist. Richly illustrated with Binney’s paintings, drawings and prints – alongside photographs and documentary materials – this is the first full-length monograph on one of New Zealand’s most important twentieth-century artists.
