For the first thirteen years of his life, Harvey Benge lived with his parents in the Auckland suburb of Mt Roskill. His family home was a modest,  two bedroom, flat roofed, weather-board house, which his father had built around 1940. This bookwork is a homage to Benge’s past and a look into the future. Published in 2010 in a signed and numbered edition of 100.
