Landfall 228 is an event, an occasion: an arts and literary festival between covers. Offering darting word-play, erudite exploration of culture and literature, and lots of imaginative and critical writing from notable practitioners and new talent, Landfall 228 contains a carousel of exuberant poets, a bureau of unpredictable essayists, a cavalcade of zestful artists, a cluster of fresh and risky prose writers. Also included are the top four essays from the Landfall 2014 Essay Competition, for which 40 entries were received. The artworks include a photo-essay on a memorial installation made by sculptor Mary McFarlane; a suite of portraits by New York-based New Zealand artist Lorene Taurerewa; graphic art by Denise Copland; and black-and-white graphic art by printmaker Barry Cleavin. There are short stories or prose fiction from Sheridan Keith, Kate Davis, Russell Haley, Andrew Paul Wood and others, as well as a chapter from a forthcoming novel, ‘The Ice Slide’, by Sandra Arnold, winner of the Landfall Seresin Residency 2014. There’s a prose childhood memoir by Michele Leggott; a Melbourne memoir by David Herkt; and a poetic tribute to West Coast writer Peter Hooper by Jeffrey Paparoa Holman. The Landfall Review section includes a major essay by C.K. Stead on Kevin Ireland’s poetry, and Damian Skinner writes about Cliff Whiting: He Toi Nuku, He Toi Rangi, while Gerry Te Kapa Coates reviews Angela Wanhalla’s award-winning book Matters of the Heart: A history of interracial marriage in New Zealand. Simone Oettli comments on Fiona Kidman’s novel The Infinite Air. And of course there is an eclectic and wide-ranging mix of brand-new poetry by Elizabeth Smither, Bernadette Hall, Anna Jackson, Rhian Gallagher, Sue Wootton, Alan Roddick, Reihana Robinson, Jen Crawford, Maris O’Rourke, Richard Reeve, Nick Ascroft, Joanna Preston and Carolyn McCurdie – as well as poems from emerging poets Kirsti Whalen, Carin Smeaton, Rata Gordon, Lynley Edmeades, Liz Breslin, Morgan Bach, Marissa Cappetta, Doc Drumheller – and more, much more. What a Landfall! The editor of New Zealand’s liveliest literary and arts magazine has sluiced for gold and come up trumps. Landfall 228 is abuzz with aspirational creativity, showcasing the nation’s best: from the uncanny and the unhomely to the affectionate and the disaffectionate; from the cultural physics of what where how to the pathos and wonder of past present and future … Landfall Aotearoa New Zealand: the narrative journey continues.

A young girl falls asleep and travels in her dreams through the sky, down to the ocean's depths and into a jungle. She is accompanied by a lion friend, who eases her fears, gives her confidence and helps her explore the world around her. Along the way she meets whales, jellyfish, grizzly bears and wolves.

An advertising slogan at the heart of pop culture, Audi’s “Vorsprung durch Technik” has not only entered everyday speech, but has also made its way into song lyrics such as “Parklife” by Blur and U2’s “Zooropa.” Yet “Vorsprung durch Technik” is far more than a slogan for Audi—it represents a conscious choice to always think in new ways. This forward-looking approach has led to Audi’s pioneering innovations such as the permanent all-wheel drive, aluminum construction and the TDI engine. Since 1909, and all throughout its eventful history, the company with the four rings as its symbol has consistently produced cars that excite drivers: the Auto Union Grand Prix racing cars, the legendary quattro, the TT. The Audi Book offers a fascinating overview of more than a hundred years of automotive history as well as showcases the brand’s illustrious present.

In 1975, the young Parisian photographer Brigitte Lacombe met Donald Sutherland and Dustin Hoffman at the Cannes Film Festival; these new acquaintances would go on to open doors for her. That same year she was hired as a photographer for the filming of Fellini’s Casanova. Since then, Lacombe’s famous images have reflected a who’s who of Hollywood cinema. This collection spans a masterfully choreographed array of photographs Lacombe took—all the way from the sets of 1970s cinema classics to film milestones of the new millennium, including Alan J. Pakula’s All the President’s Men, Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York, and Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. Conveying a certain intimacy without unmasking any mystery, Lacombe’s images capture classical beauty in a way that is fresh and exciting.

As a result of their actions such as the “Punk Prayer” in Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral and their subsequent trials, the girls of Pussy Riot were transformed into icons of protest. The images of the principal members, Nadezda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina, were seen all around the world before the two disappeared for two years into Russian prison camps. Immediately after their release, the successful Dutch entrepreneur and avid photographer Bert Verwelius contacted the two women, setting into motion what was to be an extraordinary photo shoot: using the activists’ stories and sketches of the prison camp, he depicted their living and working conditions there as an impressive picture series. Yet Bert Verwelius also shows us a very different, hidden side to the two young women in this book, his first publication. With his sensitive portraits, he captures the open and loveable nature of Nadezda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina—not to mention their beauty.

ART ARKTIS explores the fragility and variety of a majestic, untouched world through a collection of fine-art photography. Dietmar Baum and Tini Papamichalis embarked on a three-week expedition, capturing landscapes otherwise guarded from the sights of mankind by ice with the help of Hasselblad’s latest camera technology. Using their trained eyes and artistic points of view, the two have created seemingly surreal images—as if a scene from another planet was painted. The goal of this Antarctic excursion in February 2014 was to give insight into this fragile and pristine land, transporting the viewer to these solitary vistas. The stunning array of images of Antarctica evokes a lasting impression—to undoubtedly preserve this region because of its indisputable role in our planet’s life. • The first ART ARKTIS exhibition took place on May 22, 2014, in Hamburg, Germany—and now the images are available in a large-format coffee-table book • Explore the wonders of Antarctica
