              For the first time the true story of New Zealand's first successful aeroplane flights and the people behind them. Extensive research provides new understanding of historic events and corrects more than a hundred years of history with a startling account of what really happened in... 1911 and how Manurewa, the first aeroplane to fly, became 'lost'. Considered New Zealand's 'Wright brothers', Leo and Vivian Walsh were part of a small group of remarkable men and women pioneering motorised transport in the 1900's. The First is the compelling story of a generation including well-known Edwardians, George Henning, Reuben Dexter and the missing early years of international Art Deco designer, Keith Murray. The author does not neglect the careers of the Walsh sisters Veronica and Doreen with their connections to women aviators Jean Batten and Gladys Henning- Sandford, radio pioneer Aunt Daisy and Evelyn Purchas, likely the first New Zealand woman on active service to lose her life in World War One. The First addresses tobacco cultivation and manufacturing in the 1870s, the Victorian bicycle craze, the first motorcars, the Glenora Park flights and the upheaval of war then its aftermath when aeroplane flight would be experienced by ordinary New Zealanders. Terry Moyle's dedication to identifying and dating historic photographs and searching for never before seen images complement an authoritative text. As with his previous titles, Art Deco Airports and Art Deco New Zealand, masterly illustration and amazing maps by designers Contour Creative Studio instill the spirit of the age in this important history book.

              Featuring 20 gardens that showcase inspiring solutions to landscaping limited spaces to maximum effect, this book displays elegant structured gardens, whimsical retreats, verandahs and balconies, to potagers brimming with edibles and subtropical hideaways. With more than 300 phot...ographs that capture the essence of the gardens, landscaping features and plants used, this is a book that is both inspiring and practical. From a 1960's gem designed by famous architect Sir Miles Warren for his inner city apartment and office, to a new rooftop garden and another planted only with edibles, this book shows a diversity of responses to spatial constraints. Many gardens have water features, most don't have lawns and a couple of gardeners have created little havens on the berms outside their homes. Extended captions, pull-out boxes and bullet-point solutions with lots of tips and plant suggestions from each gardener conveys information in an accessible manner.
