Peter Gossage artist and writer 1946-2016

It was with real sadness so many people have read of the death at the weekend of Peter Gossage, artist and writer at the age of 70.
Go into any school or children’s library in New Zealand and you will find copies of Peter’s books (many almost loved to death with frequent handling) with their bright, clear images and their simple retelling of Maori myths and legends.
Simplicity in design and story-telling was Peter’s mantra and is a wonderful heritage for us all.   
My favourite Peter Gossage retelling
