            Many exciting new buildings have arisen from the rubble of post-earthquake Christchurch but none, perhaps, is as remarkable as Ravenscar House in the heart of the city's heritage precinct. 'Ravenscar House: A biography' explores the story of this unique, purpose-built house museu...m as the realisation of a long-held dream and the expression of a heart-warming act of public philanthropy. Christchurch journalist and writer Sally Blundell tells the compelling story of Jim and Susan Wakefield, whose vision was to share with their community the eclectic and impressive collection of art and artefacts that they had endowed to the charitable Ravenscar Trust. After their house on Scarborough Hill was demolished following the Canterbury earthquakes, the couple were determined to commission a new house museum, filled with a wide range of works by leading New Zealand artists such as Frances Hodgkins, Colin McCahon and Bill Sutton - and many more. Designed by renowned architects Patterson Associates, the Wakefields' bold but elegant addition to the city was opened in 2021. Sally Blundell's engaging and well-informed text is enhanced by family photographs, and stunning images of Ravenscar House itself, the garden it enfolds and the works within its walls. This is a unique story of resilience, architectural ingenuity and, above all, extraordinary generosity. Sally Blundell, a journalist and writer in Otautahi Christchurch, has a PhD in English literature from the University of Canterbury. She has been books and culture editor for the 'New Zealand Listener' and was a fiction judge for the 2018 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards. Her essay contributions include 'Not Listening: Changing Conversations in the Wake of the Mosque Shootings' ('Public Knowledge', ed. Emma Johnson, 2019), 'Amending the Map' ('Griffith Review 43', ed. Julianne Schultz and Lloyd Jones, 2014) and 'Reoccupying Christchurch' ('Extraordinary Anywhere', ed. Ingrid Horrocks and Cherie Lacey, 2016). Her 2007 book, 'Look T

            Beautifully photographed by top garden photographer Juliet Nicholas, this book is a visual feast ... but much more too. While it includes some of the most magnificent gardens in the country, it also reflects on gardening in a broader sense. Gardens, defined as managed landscapes,... are as diverse as the tastes of their managers. The gardeners in these pages include botanists, conservationists, food growers and artists, and the gardens range from a food forest on the south coast to a dry garden in Cromwell, a community garden in Christchurch, a subtropical jungle in Kapiti, a productive Maori garden on the east coast and a historic whaling station in the far north. In the light of our growing awareness of climate change and land degradation, the role of gardeners as kaitiaki (guardians) is explored, but there is also the infectious enthusiasm that is to be found in the company of gardeners, and here you can see how they gain inspiration and share ideas. Muses include parents, brothers, sisters and spouses, and gardeners also keep close company with nature. These gardens might be seen as snapshots of a utopia we all crave. There is enough botanical detail to appeal to the experienced gardener but it will also inspire newcomers to don gardening gloves...or sit back and enjoy what is also a superb coffee table book.

            Monsters rule the world in this compendium collecting three graphic novels--Gangsters & Goliaths, Cataclysm, and Oblivion! In Gangsters & Goliaths by John Layman and Alberto Ponticelli, Detective Makoto Sato is on a quest to bring down the Takahashi crime syndicate but Sato's eff...orts earn him a one-way trip to a tropical getaway, courtesy of the Tokyo criminal underworld--MONSTER ISLAND! Alone and facing death at the hands of both gangsters and goliaths, Sato must use his wits to survive--and enlist the aid of some unusual friends. In Cataclysm by Cullen Bunn and Dave Wachter, years have passed since a monster apocalypse nearly destroyed mankind. Now it is merely a distant, nightmarish memory for Hiroshi, an elder in one of the few remaining tribes of humans. Little does Hiroshi know that the apocalypse is not over, and that his memories of the past may yet save the future! In Oblivion by Joshua Fialkov and Brian Churilla, a scientist has created a portal to another dimension--one where monsters rule supreme! An expedition begins into a world where hope has died and Godzilla is the unrivaled King of the Monsters. But what happens when a baby kaiju hitches a ride back to the original, monster-less dimension?
