  • Marae a Journey Around New Zealand's Meeting Houses
    Marae a Journey Around New Zealand's Meeting Houses
    A magnificent documentation of and tribute to New Zealand's wharenui, big and small. Bishop Muru Walters is a very well known Anglican minister. He is also a master carver, poet, broadcaster and former Maori All Black. His son Robin is a photographer and filmmaker who is director at Curious Films. Sam Walters, Robin's wife, is a photographer. Together the Walters spent three years visiting some of this country's major meeting houses as well as many of the more humble ones - houses that serve smaller hapu and iwi - to bring together a beautiful photographic book on the meeting house. They are intensively photographed, with detailed shots of their carvings, kowhaiwhai panels, tukutuku panels and much more. Many are photographed during an event, the images conveying a rich sense of life and activity. From north to south, from the east coast to the west, and from ancient wharenui to bold new designs, this handsome book, with its engaging personal text, captures the huge variety of New Zealand's original architecture. It's a book for all New Zealanders to treasure.

  • Moment and Memory Photographs from the New Zealand Landscape
    Moment and Memory Photographs from the New Zealand Landscape
    Craig Potton rose to prominence as a photographer in the late 1980s, with a distinct and original view of the landscape of New Zealand. As a photographer with little interest in a sentimentalised view of the land, he pursued a less compromising and more muscular vision that sought to convey this country's remarkable landscape in a real light. In the decades since, Craig Potton has become one of New Zealand's most distinguished landscape photographers, famous for his moody, often dramatic images that signal a deeply felt connection with the wild places of New Zealand. This revised edition of Moment & Memory contains a collection of Craig's finest photographs, personally selected to give a unique view of the New Zealand wilderness. The images range from lush, intense forest interiors and sweeping seascapes to his famous brooding and powerful images of Milford Sound. The photographs are accompanied by a series of reflective essays and writings that offer insights into the impulses, influences and philosophies that underpin his life and approach to photography, and express his concerns about the ongoing threats to wild nature.
    Printed using the latest technology to give the most accurate reproduction of Craig's photographs, Moment & Memory is a significant book for those with an appreciation of fine photography and a love of New Zealand's landscape.

  • 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.

  • Ngai Tahu Deeds a Window on New Zealand  History
    Ngai Tahu Deeds a Window on New Zealand History
    Harry Evison re-examines New Zealand colonial history in the light of a number of original documents, particularly the ten Ngai Tahu deeds by which the Crown acquired Maori title to the southern half of New Zealand from 1844 to 1864. A unique feature of the book is its handsome colour reproductions of these deeds and their plans, published here for the first time. During intensive research in the Crown deeds archive, the author compiled transcripts and commentaries on the Ngai Tahu deeds and associated documents, which are included here to encourage readers to examine the images and make their own conclusions. Sixteen chapters of text provide a fresh account of the period and the key people involved. They are written in the uncluttered style that won the author the 1994 New Zealand Book Award for Non-fiction for Te Wai Pounamu: The Greenstone Island. Chapters on Maori aboriginal title and the impact of the Treaty of Waitangi and the Wakefield scheme, and the Maori policies of Governor Grey, challenge some popular assumptions about New Zealand history.
    Besides the deeds documents, the author draws on original manuscripts such as private and official letters and journals, Native Land Court minutes, and royal commission testimonies. Thus the Maori voice is heard alongside the official voice. The Ngai Tahu Deeds is intended as a manifesto for the scientific method, demonstrating the use of original primary sources to find out what probably happened in history
