              "A companion publication to Jennifer Haworth's The art of war: New Zealand war artists in the field 1939-1945. It tells the story of New Zealand artists who served in World War 1. The two commissioned war artists, Wellingtonian Nugent Welch and ex-pat New Zealander George Butler,... produced nearly 130 paintings of the Western Front. These are now in the National War Art collection in Wellington and most are reproduced in this book. Also included are the paintings Horace Moore-Jones completed on Gallipoli and the story of his painting "Simpson and his donkey". The book presents the work of soldier-artists such as Arthur Lloyd, George Woolley, John Weeks, Archibald Nicoll, Francis McCracken, Robert Johnson, James Turkington, William Penlington, W.H. Gummer and Walter Bowring, who painted the home front. Through the work of these artists the book tells the story of how New Zealand artists responded to the war"--Publisher's description.

              Auckland Then and Now tells the history of the city through a unique combination of vintage photos paired with their modern-day equivalent. After the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in February 1840 the new Governor of New Zealand, William Hobson, chose the site of Auckland as ...his new capital and named it after George Eden, Earl of Auckland, who was then Viceroy of India. He also named the hill with the best view of the harbour, Maungawhau, Mount Eden. Since that time, the city has thrived, driven by a variety of businesses including a gold rush. Auckland Then and Now pairs up vintage streetscenes from the Victorian era through to the 1950s, to show how the city has changed in over 150 years of development. Sites include: The Ferry Building, Viaduct Basin, Queen Street, Victoria Street, the Town Hall, Karangahape Road, Albert Park, War Memorial, Newmarket, Mount Eden, One Tree Hill, Mission Bay, St. Heliers, Harbour Bridge, Devonport and Takapuna Beach.
