– 2008 Montana New Zealand Book Awards juding panel
This spectacular book on one of New Zealand's most sought-after contemporary painters won Best Illustrated Book at the 2008 Montana New Zealand Book Awards, and Best Book at the PANZ Book Awards 2008.
Taking its title from a line in Bob Dylan’s song 'Mr. Tambourine Man', Jingle Jangle Morning reveals the development of Hammond’s practice—from his frenetic, music-inspired work of the 1980s through to the rock surrealism of the 1990s and the evolution of his signature bird paintings for which he is best known. Essays by Jennifer Hay, Laurence Aberhart, Chris Knox and Ron Brownson provide insight into the mysteries of Hammond’s painterly language, and are accompanied by an extensive chronology. Designed by artist and designer Aaron Beehre and featuring more than sixty colour plates, this is one of our most collectable books.
This book was made possible with the support of Ross and Bev Christoffersen, Aloysius and Eileen Teh, and Two Paddocks Vineyard. Published with the assistance of Christchurch City Council, Creative New Zealand, the Friends of Christchurch Art Gallery and Spectrum Print.
