In All of Us, established New Zealand author Adrienne Jansen and exciting new writer Carina Gallegos use poems and short prose to weave together the vibrant, expansive, and sometimes heart-wrenching stories of immigrants and people from refugee background in New Zealand today. Drawing on their time spent with immigrant and refugee communities, their words delicately lift the veil that separates us, providing a moving exploration of the refugee and immigrant experience. All of Us is a timely reminder of the humanity that perseveres at the core of this global debate.

In uncovering the remarkable, largely unseen work of early New Zealand photographers, Hidden Light: Early Canterbury and West Coast Photography is an exploration of an often overlooked aspect of our artistic past. This publication highlights the sometimes unsettling stories of photographers at work in nineteenth-century Te Waipounamu. Spectacular landscapes by skilled amateurs and professionals join powerful images of tangata whenua, settlers and mining scenes. The stories and work of several little-known pioneering women photographers are also given new attention. Published with the assistance of the Friends of Christchurch Art Gallery

Previously announced. Format & Price change When I grow up, will I be the King of the Jungle…?Curious, playful, and clumsy: Michael Poliza’s irre-sistible photographs of baby animals are so adorable that it is hard to imagine these same creatures grow-ing up into fierce hunters or nimble prey, battling it out for survival. This gift book is the first title of Poliza’s baby animal photographs, many of them published for the first time. From lion cubs in Botswana to baby chimpanzees and gorillas in Tanzania, penguin chicks on the Antarctic peninsula to polar bear cubs in Canada, Poliza travels the world in search of the most endearing wildlife babies. Whether in the African savannah or polar extremes, few photographers have come so close to their wildlife subjects. To achieve such proximity, Poliza shows masterful sensitivity and patience, not only towards the baby animals them-selves, but also with their fiercely protective mothers. From a frolicking baby elephant to a sleeping little lion cub, Baby Animals brings page after page of heart-warming images and tiny triumphs in nature photography.

Chef Marc Lepine's debut cookbook, Atelier, is a celebration of a restaurant that has reinvigorated the fine-dining culture in Canada. It begins with “Origins,” which traces Lepine’s expansive career―from his relationship with food at an early age to his formal training in Europe and, eventually, the U.S. at Michelin-starred Alinea to the opening of Atelier. “Vision” explores a unique creative approach that is fueled by a restless imagination and personal expression, while “Innovations” features a spirited collection of 48 artful dishes that critics and fans have come to love―Carrot Hoop, Octopus Terrarium, Dino Egg, and many more. Here, we’ll see thought-provoking recipes inspired by local ingredients, seasonality, and pioneering techniques. This impressive and beautiful volume is an exciting tribute to a unique culinary philosophy. Featuring beautiful photography by award-winning photographer Christian Lalonde, Atelier is an essential book for chefs, culinary professionals, and foodies with an interest in modern cuisine, food culture, and an unconventional approach to dining.

In 1918, from deep within the West Coast bush, a miner on the run from the military wrote a letter to his sweetheart. Two months later he was in jail. Like millions of others, his letter had been steamed open by a team of censors shrouded in secrecy. Using their confiscated mail as a starting point, Dead Letters: Censorship and subversion in New Zealand 1914–1920 reveals the remarkable stories of people caught in the web of wartime surveillance. Among them were a feisty German-born socialist, a Norwegian watersider, an affectionate Irish nationalist, a love-struck miner, an aspiring Maxim Gorky, a cross-dressing doctor, a nameless rural labourer, an avid letter writer with a hatred of war, and two mystical dairy farmers with a poetic bent. Military censorship within New Zealand meant that their letters were stopped, confiscated and filed away, sealed and unread for over 100 years. Until now. Intimate and engaging, this dramatic narrative weaves together the personal and political, bringing to light the reality of wartime censorship. In an age of growing state power, new forms of surveillance and control, and fragility of the right to privacy and freedom of opinion, Dead Letters is a startling reminder that we have been here before. The letters under discussion are anything but dead. Revelling in the texture, the handwriting, the smell, the very tangible form of the surviving correspondence, Dead Letters conveys the thrill of discovery as well as the indignation of injustice. … In telling the history of the letters’ authors and addressees, alongside the context in which correspondence was conducted, the chapters unfold an extraordinary, sometimes tragic, sometimes farcical, often funny insight into who and what it was that challenged police and defence authorities. — Charlotte Macdonald, historian These intercepted letters reveal dark and wonderful corners of New Zealand history. Davidson has done a superb job of rescuing long-suppressed voices from official oblivion. — Mark Derby, author of The Prophet and the Policeman: The story of Rua Kenana and John Cullen

All the health conscious seek insights that will lead to a long life... ... so if you want to know what is going to kill you, I can tell you. Perhaps not literally—all rules have exceptions, but if you are in reasonable health and live in the Western world, you are unlikely to die of infection. Malnutrition, almost certainly not. A car crash is possible, but unlikely. If you fulfil the destiny of most affluent humans in this epoch, you will die of your immune system. You may be lucky enough to enjoy good health until the very end of your days, but the odds are against it. As you get older, the chances go up that something big, like a stroke or cancer, will drag down your quality of life. Well known healthy options, like eating coloured plants, and exercising, suppress big diseases. In large part they work by keeping the immune system in balance. A further option in the longevity, anti-inflammatory tool kit, and a major theme of this book, is the developing science of ‘functional food’. Functional foods, also known as nutraceuticals (and bioactives, and super foods) are foods, and edible novelties, like leaves and seeds, that are almost drug-like in their capacity to suppress inflammation. Seeking them out is indispensable for a maximum longevity strategy. If you’re already leading a healthy lifestyle, there’s still more you can you do to fight sickness and disease. This is the story of inflammation and health—what goes wrong as we age, and what you can do about it.—Dr R Mulgan

For decades, a passion for vintage motors was regarded as an eccentric hobby, particularly prevalent among the wealthy of an older generation. Today, classic cars have an ever larger, younger fan base. Events such as the Mille Miglia in Italy, the Festival of Speed at Goodwood in England, and Pebble Beach in the U.S. enjoy increasing popularity and booming visitor numbers, year after year. In an opulent coffee table book, Classic Cars Review celebrates the classic car phenomenon by presenting the most beautiful, exciting, and exclusive vintage vehicles, until now only visible in museums or behind the locked doors of private collections. It’s a Concours d’Élégance in book form, showcasing such icons as the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, Aston Martin DB5, and Rolls-Royce Phantom III, as well as a multitude of extraordinary cars with remarkable histories—whether owned by well-known personalities or ushered in extraordinary successes on the racetrack. Many of these cars were produced in minimal runs or are one of few surviving models. In addition to the vehicles themselves, this must-have classic car book also shows the institutions and key players behind the exclusive vintage car scene. With large, never-before-seen collections and their collectors, Classic Cars Review provides exclusive insights into the world of the largest classic car auction houses, the most innovative classic car dealers, and all the key vintage car events.
