              Every 24 hours, the Earth rolls into its own vast shadow and darkness ?oods across the land and sea. In a 1600-kilometre-long gliding plumb-line down the length of New Zealand, our beaches, towns, cities, farms, forests, lakes and mountains sink into shadow. Annette Lees takes... us walking into the night of Aotearoa that follows. In the company of bats, owls, moths, singing crickets and seabirds, After Dark guides us from dusk to dawn through a rich and fascinating trove of night stories: tales of war stealth, fireworks and ghosts; nights lit by candles, lanterns, fires and lighthouses; night surfing, night fishing, night diving and night skiing; mountain walking in the dark and night navigation on ocean voyaging waka. After Dark weaves memoir, social history and unknown tales from the natural world to inspire us to step out the front door at night, where we can shed our day selves and slip easily into a wilder and older world that is waiting there.

              Promoting Prosperity: The Art of Early New Zealand Advertising (Hardback)

              By Alsop, Peter; Stewart, Gary

              "This is a book about the art of early New Zealand advertising, before colour photography and TV changed the media landscape forever. With close to 750 images and 11 essays by respected commentators, Promoting Prosperity fills an important gap in our art history as the first dedi...cated and extensive collection of this rich material. But more than that, Promoting Prosperity is a celebration of the dreams and aspirations of early New Zealanders, and of our development as an emerging nation. It profiles many of the economic and social foundations that once made New Zealand the envy of the world; successes that offer an inspiring reminder that no challenge is too big to overcome and no opportunity beyond reach"--Inside dust jacket

              The Little Things: Cartoons to Save Your Sanity (Paperback)

              By Lawrey, Matt; Illustrated by Lole, Peter

              The Little Things is a cartoon created by parents for parents, which sympathises, commiserates and celebrates with mums and dads everywhere. Launched in 2010 The Little Things is the most successful new cartoon to have come out of New Zealand in many years, and despite slashed bu...dgets and shrinking readerships it has been picked up by a range of newspapers in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Matt Lawrey came up with the idea for the cartoon one day while drinking beer and watching his two sons do the mad sorts of things little kids do. An exhaustive search of artists led him to Peter Lole, a highly experienced professional illustrator, who importantly has three children of his own. Parenting is one of life's most universal experiences, and there is a huge appetite for these beautifully realized cartoons, which make people laugh, smile, and ultimately celebrate the upside-down world of children and families.

              Though many have predicted it, postcards have not been killed off by the digital world, and remain very popular with tourists. People still enjoy a straightforward, tangible portrayal of the places they visit and the things they do as tourists. Postcards from New Zealand aims to ...translate the popularity of postcards into book form with a range of postcard-type images that cover the visitor experience in New Zealand. Consequently the photographs in this book are appropriately diverse, with all of the key tourist destinations covered, as well as plenty more in-between. The pocket-edition format has been a spectacularly successful part of Craig Potton Publishing's pictorial New Zealand range, and Postcards from New Zealand will be another welcome addition to this series.

              Craig Potton rose to prominence as a photographer in the late 1980s, with a distinct and original view of the landscape of Aotearoa/New Zealand. He was a photographer with little interest in a sentimentalised or romantic view of the land, but rather pursued a less compromising an...d 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 parts of New Zealand. This book collects together many of his most celebrated images in one place, a body of work that clearly shows why his reputation is so strong. The images range from his celebrated aerial photography, especially that of the Southern Alps and Fiordland, and of the volcanoes of the Central North Island, his beautifully composed and complex forest interiors, his gentle seascapes, and also those from the rural parts of New Zealand. Beautifully produced and packaged in large format, this will be a book of New Zealand landscape photography not to be missed.
