Quality assured, Guy Somerset

Kate De Goldi and Susan Paris (eds)
Gecko Press, $40.00,
ISBN 9781776570775

Would it kill Wellington children’s publisher Gecko Press to once – just once! – say “Sod it, really, who can be bothered?” and bung out some bit of old rubbish they have given neither thought nor effort to?

They could use the best editors, writers, illustrators and designer, and get the whole thing printed to the highest art-book standards offshore in China, resulting in an object so exquisitely pleasing you’re as likely to stare at it in religious awe as you are to crack it open to actually read.
