    New Zealand Landscapes
    The most successful large format pictorial book over the last decade has been Andris Apse's "New Zealand Landscapes".

  • New Zealands Lost Heritage the Stories Behind Our Forgotten Landmarks
    New Zealands Lost Heritage the Stories Behind Our Forgotten Landmarks
    New Zealand has a disappointing record of preserving our oldest and proudest buildings. In this book well known historian Richard Wolfe features 20 notable structures which, for various reasons, no longer exist. Most of the buildings have been demolished in the name of urban development, creating controversy and representing a damning indictment of this country's sense of heritage. Each building is discussed and illustrated including the circumstances of its demise. The selection includes: Ruapekapeka pa in Northland (burned down deliberately), Admiralty House in Auckland (demolished to make way for new roads) Wellington's Parliament Buildings (accidental fire), Invercargill's Seacliff Asylum (fire), and TJ Edmond's landmark factory (bulldozed). What emerges is a fascinating social and historical narrative that sheds light on parts of New Zealand's cultural history and reveals the truth of the old adage that history repeats. Wolfe's emphasis on the significance of lost architecture presents a powerful appeal for preservation of the important works that remain.

  • Pacific An Ocean of Wonders
    Pacific An Ocean of Wonders
    If you centre a globe on Kiritimati (Christmas Island), all you see around it is a vast expanse of ocean. Islands of various sizes float in view while glimpses of continents encroach on the fringes, but this is a view dominated by water. The immense stretch of the Pacific Ocean is inhabited by a diverse array of peoples and cultures bound by a common thread: their relationship with the sea. The rich history of the Pacific is explored through specific objects, each one beautifully illustrated, from the earliest human engagement with the Pacific through to the modern day. With entries covering mapping, trade, whaling, flora and fauna, and the myriad vessels used to traverse the ocean, Pacific builds on recent interest in the voyages of James Cook to tell a broader history. This visually stunning publication highlights the importance of an ocean that covers very nearly a third of the surface of the globe, and which has dramatically shaped the world and people around it.

  • Photographic Guide to Ferns of New Zealand
    Photographic Guide to Ferns of New Zealand
    Ferns occur in great abundance in New Zealand - there are nearly 200 native species alone occurring everywhere from the coast through to the country's alpine regions. Then there are the fern allies - including clubmosses and forkferns that have an even longer fossil history than ferns. However, most of the ferns and fern allies described in this guide are the commoner species that are more likely to be seen when journeying around the New Zealand countryside. For ease of reference the common names are highlighted in the text although all species described are listed according to their scientific names so that their affinities with related species may be seen more easily.

  • Sinking Lessons
    Sinking Lessons
    The poems in Sinking Lessons portray the vitality of a world full of things and beings we too often disregard, using language that vibrates in harmony with the lively tales it tells - from small, everyday events to stories of shipwrecks and strandings, resurrections and reanimations, arctic adventures and descents into the underworld.
    The cast of characters includes members of the poet's family alongside heroes from myth and literature, such as Orpheus, Scheherazade and Frankenstein's Creature. And crowding in upon these, at all times, a multitude of non-human protagonists: sun and stars, wind and water, mud and sand, body fluids, decaying matter, chemicals organic and inorganic, and a great many fishes and birds and beasts.
    Sinking Lessons is the first collection of poetry from Philip Armstrong, winner of the 2019 Kathleen Grattan Poetry Award.

  • Wonderland
    Wonderland
    A superb tribute to the New Zealand landscape photography of Whites Aviation. Many of New Zealand's best hand-coloured photos were produced by Whites Aviation between the 1950s and 1970s and changed the way we saw our country. These glorious scenic vistas were a sensation, adorning offices and lounges throughout the land. Now, despite massive changes in society and photography, these images remain sought-after collectors' items, a charming reminder of gentler, quieter times.
    The photos in this book were first presented in Peter Alsop's book 'Hand-Coloured New Zealand: The Photographs of Whites Aviation', which was published in large format in 2016 by Potton & Burton, and which was an immediate hit, quickly selling out.

    'Wonderland' collects the best of these images in a more condensed edition, presented in the style of a New Zealand pictorial and geographically organised from Northland and Auckland, down to the deep south. The introduction tells the story of Whites Aviation, with profiles of the key personalities behind this company's success.
