              Most of Aotearoa's amazing arachnids - which include spiders, ticks, mites and pseudoscorpions - are as unique to New Zealand as kiwi and tuatara. Some are so weird and wonderful that they could star in sci fi movies, but despite that we know very little about them. In this com...panion volume to Why is that lake so blue?, arachnid experts Simon Pollard and Phil Sirvid take us on an amazing journey of arachnid discovery.

              This major book tells the story of four expeditions made by staff of the Dominion Museum between 1919 and 1923, setting them in the context of a series of collaborations between Maori and non-Maori leaders in New Zealand in the wake of the New Zealand Wars. Written by some of N...ew Zealand's best-known experts on te Ao Maori and its intersection with the Pakeha world, the text was developed with the descendants of iwi with whom the expeditions worked. Richly illustrated with historic images and contemporary work, it is a landmark publication.

              WHEN CRINOLINES, BUSTLES AND OSTRICH FEATHERS WERE THE HEIGHT OF COLONIAL FASHION. This richly illustrated and lively social history explores the creation, consumption and spectacle of fashionable dress in Aotearoa New Zealand from 1840 to the early 1900s. Dressmakers were essent...ial contributors to the development of New Zealand, and as a colonial outpost of the British Empire, New Zealands 19th century dress culture was heavily shaped by international trends. Interactions with Maori, the demands of settler lifestyle and the countrys geography all added another layer. Dressed teems with the fascinating, busy lives of early businesswomen, society women and civic figures. Featuring dresses and fashionable accessories from museums throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, and including over 270 images, this major book makes a significant contribution to histories of colonial dress.

              Rita Angus: An Artist's Life

              Jill Trevelyan won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009 for this magnificent biography of one of New Zealands leading 20th century artists. Now back in print, this revised edition brings the book up to date with new assessments of Angus and in the ...context of the big Royal Academy show that opens in London in November 2020. Rita Angus was a pioneer of modern painting during the 1930s and 1940s. More than 100 years after her birth, works such as Rutu (1951), Central Otago (1940), and Portrait of Betty Curnow (19411942) are national icons. While Angus is perhaps New Zealands best-loved painter, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before this acclaimed and revelatory book. Jill Trevelyan traces Anguss life, from her childhood in Napier and Palmerston North to her death in Wellington in 1970. Drawing on a wealth of archives and letters, she brings to life Rita Angus the person: highly articulate and full of zest, intellectually curious and forthright in her attitudes and emotions, powerfully committed to her pacifist and feminist beliefs and dedicated, above all, to life as an artist. Rita Angus: An Artists Life is generously illustrated with more than 150 artworks and private photographs to bring Angus her private struggles and public reputation and her greatest legacy, her art to complex, colourful life.
