            The country's longest-standing scenic book, A Portrait of New Zealand depicts the landscapes of the North and South Islands in over 200 glorious photographs. The book was first published in 1982 in two separate volumes, with the combined edition published in 1988 and reprinted ev...ery year since. Today, with over 200,000 sales to its credit, A Portrait of New Zealand is a Platinum title on the Premier New Zealand Bestsellers list - a statistic that testifies to the book's immense appeal and its high value for money. The current edition contains the same well-loved images but has been given new colour reproduction throughout in order to restore the spectacular quality of the original photographs. Errol Brathwaite's original text has been revised and rewritten by the multi-award-winning journalist and writer Jill Worrall, who was voted Cathay Pacific Travel Writer of the Year in 2005.

            "Christine Fernyhough has built an extraordinary collection of over 4000 everyday objects of mid century New Zealand craft, design and folk art. From furniture to toys and games, tableware to ornamental objects, Royal Family memorabilia to Kiwiana, Crown Lynn to hand-coloured sce...nic posters, together these objects are a gloriously nostalgic, colourful and tangible record of the way we lived and the things we surrounded ourselves with. Christine has devoted her classic 1960s seaside bach, The Butterfly House to housing her collection, transforming it into a beguiling mid-century fantasy ... She entertainingly blends her own family stories with those of New Zealands manufacturers and craftspeople, sharing her journey into collecting as well as her knowledge and passion, and evoking nostalgia for the beach, the bach and bygone summers"--Publisher information.

            "McCahon (1919-1987) is widely recognised as an outstanding figure in twentieth century art whose ground-breaking work over four decades changed the way we see this country, while engaging intensely with questions of faith, mortality, belonging and the power of art. In this landm...ark new book, published in association with Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki on the 100th anniversary of McCahons birth, celebrated writer and curator Justin Paton takes readers on a journey through the landscape of Aotearoa New Zealand, as the artist loved and painted it. From Otago to Canterbury, Takaka to Taranaki, Muriwai to Northland and many more places in between, Paton brings his curators eye to a selection of nearly 200 of McCahons paintings and drawings, including iconic and beloved works and others never before published, presented in fifteen themed sections offering fresh perspectives on McCahons abiding concerns. In elegant, responsive and deeply compelling prose, the author traces McCahons travels through New Zealand, charts his remarkable development as a painter and thinker, explores his deepening engagement with Maori culture and environmental issues, and reveals his vision of the land as a source of light, peace and spiritual sustenance"--Publisher information.
