Our Book of the Week this week is Hand-Coloured New Zealand: The photographs of Whites Aviation by Peter Alsop
From 1945, Whites Aviation began producing exquisitely hand-coloured detailed aerial photographs of New Zealand which are prized not only as a record of the country in a different time but for their aesthetic and nostalgic qualities. This is a stunning and desirable book.
