For forty years, the Colorama dominated the east wall of New York City's Grand Central Terminal, where it was seen by thousands of people passing through each day. The massive backlit transparencies measured 60 feet wide by 18 feet tall and changed every few weeks between 1950 and 1990, resulting in a total production of 565 Coloramas. Eastman Kodak Company conceived of the imposing size and vibrancy to demonstrate the brilliance of color photography, and thus, the company's color film products. At a time when color photographs were seen by many as garish or prosaic, Eastman Kodak sought to mass-market color photography, just as the company had marketed shapshot photography since it introduced the Kodak camera in 1888 and the Kodak Brownie camera in 1900. The idealized lifestyle presented in the Coloramas was intended to celebrate family or travel snapshooting, reinforcing the idea that color photography was the best way to memorialize all of life's moments. The Colorama display in Grand Central Terminal was one of the longest and most successful corporate marketing campaigns of the twentieth century and continues to be examined in the context of the history of advertising and color photography.

After a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch on 22 February 2011 photographer David Cook returned to his former hometown and found that central city irreparably damaged. He was inspired to unearth his archive of 6000 photographs of the city he'd shot as a young man in his twenties, rebuilding through images the city as he remembered it. The photographs he selected reveal Christchurch in the 1980s - Cathedral Square, Centennial Pool, Lancaster Park, schoolboys, punks, nuns. Meet Me In The Square is a moving, nostalgic journey through the city we'll never see again.

One of Aotearoa New Zealand's most perceptive artists, Laurence Aberhart is a photographer who makes images of the vanishing past in an accelerating world. It was Christchurch where he developed his eye for the scenes that later brought his work to international attention. These early photographs of ordinary suburban houses, abandoned shops, masonic lodges and long-lost fast-food joints - some of them now iconic, others unseen or little know - depict a city and a way of life that no longer exists.

Too often art books are dense and inaccessible. 101 Works of Art is immediately engaging with large images, big details and conversational texts. Written to feel as if the reader is standing with the curator in front of the painting, texts are short, personal and insightful. Learn how an artwork was made, what inspired the artist, the secrets behind the frame. See up close the movement of the painter's brushstrokes, the glinting surface of a glass sculpture the almost-hidden detail of a Dutch master. This large, beautifully presented book showcases 101 treasures from its collection – paintings, drawings, sculpture, film and photographs that stand out in a line-up of New Zealand's most significant collected works. Coloured page edges and ribbons match the colours within. And like an origami cherry on top, the patchwork dust jacket opens out then folds back on itself to make a second dust jacket. Designed by award-winning artist and designer Aaron Meehre, 101 was shortlisted for Best Illustrated book and won Best Cover at the 2016 PANZ awards.
