  • 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.

  • Nicolas Dillon Drawn to the Wild
    Nicolas Dillon Drawn to the Wild
    Nicolas Dillon is one of New Zealand's leading wildlife painters, who has built a reputation over the last 30 years for his masterful portraits of our wildlife, in particular birds. His evocative, moody paintings are deeply considered observations of nature and the environment.

    At the heart of his practice is drawing in the field. Using a high-powered spotting scope, he works quickly to capture the living character of the birds he is observing. This book beautifully illustrates his working process by combining many of the drawings and watercolour sketches done directly from life, with finished paintings completed in his studio.

    Nicolas Dillon is motivated by a deep yearning to connect with something beyond what he sees. 'It's about an intimacy or a closeness, a feeling for nature that I am trying to put across in the paintings.'

    With drawings, sketches and paintings of most of our bird species, as well as text from the author to capture something of his experience of painting the featured birds, this book is a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to New Zealand's birdlife.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Tableland The History Behind Mt Arthur
    Tableland The History Behind Mt Arthur
    The story of the Tableland, the area behind Mt Arthur on the eastern side of Kahurangi National Park.
    Generations of Nelsonians have lived in sight of the Arthur Range on the western border of the Nelson district. But few of them know the stories that were played out on the Tableland, the high tussock plateau of Mt Arthur, in the adjacent Cobb Valley or in the ranges and valleys beyond.
    Explored by surveyors, farmed by the early pioneers, prospected by goldminers, loved by trampers, hunters and cavers, and cared for by Forest Service rangers, DOC rangers and conservationists, this is the story of a much-loved part of New Zealand's backcountry.
    The chapters in 'Tableland' reflect its diverse land usage, from grazing and gold mining, asbestos mining to hydroelectric generation, but as well, tell the history of the characters who have worked, lived and played here. Beautifully illustrated with the author's photography, as well as a wide range of historic material and photos, this will be a book treasured by those with a connection to this area.

  • Tamatea Dusky The Remarkable Story of Fiordland's Dusky Sound
    Tamatea Dusky The Remarkable Story of Fiordland's Dusky Sound
    Tamatea/Dusky Sound, in the southwestern corner of Fiordland National Park, contains a magnificent archipelago of over 700 islands.

    It has a fascinating history, both Maori and European, but best known for being the place where Captain Cook and the Resolution crew spent six weeks in 1773.

    Arguably, it is the conservation story that is its most compelling and enduring, for this is where nature conservation began in New Zealand over 120 years ago, and where much of our ground-breaking work in predator control and species conservation has taken place over the last 50 years. Today, the greater Tamatea/Dusky Sound is the focus of one of the most significant and ambitious conservation and restoration projects in the world, as populations of such birds as kakapo, kiwi, and tieke/saddleback are protected and re-established.

    Tamatea/Dusky journeys through today’s extensive restoration efforts, from the many islands to the mainland and mountains, while charting the extraordinary episodes of human endeavour that have taken place over the last 250 years in this remote, yet spectacular, corner of the New Zealand wilderness.

  • 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.
