Country Courses of New Zealand

Country Courses of New Zealand

One of our latest golf gifts, NZ book 'Country Courses of New Zealand' is a treat. New Zealand may be know for its high profile famous courses like Cape Kidnappers, and Milbrook, but this book gets you off the beaten fairway to some of the little known treasures.

From Waitangi in the north to the picturesque course on Stewart Isand, with its few dozen members, each of these courses is a back-country treat. You might be sharing the course with perhaps a couple of others, having put your green fee in the honesty box.

This book will not only appeal to die-hard golfers, but to the general reader who will learn much about the characters and history that helped create these country courses and make them what they are.


Country courses of NZ is a large, and beautiful quality  hard-back book, and at $60.00 is great value.

Corporate clients should contact us for quantity discounts and to discuss branding options.

Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand

Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand

A box of new 2012 books arrived on my desk this morning, and for me this is the pick of them.

Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand
Carol Bucknell and Sally Tagg have travelled the length of New Zealand in search of the finest contemporary gardens they could find. They succeeded. This is a stunningly photographed book, and will become a treasure, even to those who are not gardeners.

Right from the front cover, each garden has been captured in its dramatic modernist best. And as you would expect with these mostly big budget gardens, the houses they surround are not too shabby either. Many of the gardens also feature dramatic garden sculptures.

Each  featured garden contains a discussion with the designer.

Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand is a handsome book, beautifully styled, and should become one of our  leading gifts this Christmas.

It retails at $65.00, and as always we offer free gift wrapping. Purchasers of corporate gifts can contact us for  quantity discount pricing, and to discuss branding options.

Selling the Dream

Selling the Dream

Selling the Dream
Subtitled 'The Art of Early Tourism', this is a magnificent book that showcases the pre-1960's posters used to promote New Zealand. The imagery (see below) is both quaint and an outstanding display of early New Zealand graphic art.

You will be taken on a sentimental and fascinating journey through New Zealand, (sometimes called "Maoriland" at the time). Selling the Dream is a collaboration between Peter Allsop (collector of Art & Kiwiana), Dave Bamford (tourism consultant) and Gary Stewart (designer) with a stunning result.

It is a beautiful quality large hard-back book, with over  400 pages and 1000 images. Selling the Dream retails at $79.99.

As always, our gifts are beautifully wrapped, and we offer our corporate clients quantity discounts, and branding options.
