Lester Hall

Lester Hall

Lester lives in the Bay of Islands.


His latest stories are being written in the formats of stamps, often actual early New Zealand stamps altered to accept and accentuate the narrative he wishes to express. They are his "Ngati Pakeha Inks" - reproductions of his work printed on the very best of todays papers and inks.


"We are a new culture on the World stage-emerging now. Each of us can speak to what that culture will be."
