Arapera Blank was one of New Zealand's first bilingual poets and, in 1958, was the first Maori writer to win a Katherine Mansfield award. Her work is an insight into biculturalism and feminism, and of Maori society on the cusp of being integrated into the country's urban cultures. Anton Blank is the son of Arapera and her Swiss husband Pius. He has recently published his mother's work in a book called For Someone I Love - A collection of writing by Arapera Blank. It's a volume of her poetry, short stories and essays, accompanied by photos taken by Pius.
