It Must be New Zealand
A compact but charming homage to the unique characteristics of the New Zealand way of life, this gift/souvenir book from an award-winning local photographer encapsulates the image of Kiwis and their country as seen by themselves and by others. The phrase 'It must be New Zealand' serves as the subliminal pay-off line in a series of captions that praise the qualities of New Zealand's landscapes, landmarks, lifestyle and people: from living Maori traditions such as weaving and tattooing, to high-country farming and dairying, to the quirky charm of homespun dwellings, holiday spots and celebrations. Sure to strike a chord among New Zealanders and, particularly, with visitors.
