new book of high calibre photography

The Photographic Society of New Zealand has chosen 181 exquisite, arty and inspirational photos from its members and put them in this 160-page hardback coffee-table style book.

In an age when several websites are devoted to photography with examples from thousands of contributors, why would you pay $69 for a book? Well that goes to the essence of the tactile nature and visual quality of a book versus a computer screen.

It's certainly a more intriguing book, with its vast range of subjects and styles, than the standard "glossy New Zealand scenery for visitors" type, and would enhance any café or waiting room literature table. Although only about 10 photos have a transport theme we have it available in our online shop.
