150 Years of Rail in NZ
150 Years of Rail in NZ
Rail: 150 Years of Rail in New Zealand is a rich, loving and lavish record of how New Zealanders have interacted with trains and railways since first European settlement to more recent times. Produced in association with the Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT), and primarily showcasing an array of machines in their full glory, it also portrays epic feats of construction, the identities and personalities who influenced our rail story, tragedies that gripped a nation, how rail was instrumental in shaping our fledgling and largely agricultural economy, and restoration and renaissance into the modern day. What emerges is an absorbing and dramatic photographic account, a keepsake for aficionados and general readers alike. A stunning, timely and brilliantly compelling tribute to our life with rail.

1967 Chris Amon Scuderia Ferrari & a Year of Living Dangerously
1967 Chris Amon Scuderia Ferrari & a Year of Living Dangerously
Chris Amon: 1967 is a carefully crafted look at what it was like, as well as what it took, to be a Grand Prix driver at the end of the era that immediately preceded slick tyres and wings, full-face helmets, effective fire-resistant clothing, self-sealing fuel lines and other safety devices. Using Chris Amon's 1967 season as a base, John Julian has interviewed several 1960s Grand Prix drivers, along with the family and friends of others sadly lost to us. Employing a little literary licence, he has drawn an attractive and realistic sketch that features other characters from the period as well as suggestions that give the flavour of 1967, such as which music might best accompany parts of the text, depending upon the month and the country in which the race is being run.

45 South A Journey Across Southern NZ
45 South A Journey Across Southern NZ
The 45th parallel south is a circle of latitude that lies 45 degrees south of the equator and theoretically marks the mid-way point between the equator and the South Pole. Unlike its northern equivalent, it passes mainly over ocean. New Zealand is one of the few land masses to lie in its path. In 45 South photographer Arno Gasteiger travels the 45th parallel, documenting the dramatic variety of landscapes that lie along this invisible southern marker as well as the interesting characters who call it home. Alongside Gasteiger's photographs, award-winning novelist Laurence Fearnley writes of her deep love of this part of the world, and the events and people that have shaped it. From the rugged river mouths on the east coast of the South Island to the sprawling landscapes of Central Otago and the untouched beauty of the west coast fiords, 45 South offers a captivating view of southern New Zealand.
