The country's longest-standing scenic book, 'A Portrait of New Zealand' depicts the landscapes of the North and South Islands in over 200 photographs. The book was first published in 1982 in two separate volumnes, with the combined edition published in 1988 and reprinted every year since. This new edition contains the same well-loved images but has been given new colour reproduction throughout in order to restore teh spectacular quality of the original photographs. Errol Brathwaite's original text has been revised and rewritten by the mulit-award winning journalist and writer Jill Worrall.
Warren Jacobs photographed and published countless books about New Zealand under his own imprint, Kowhai Publishing, before selling the company to New Holland. He lives in Lyttelton. After a career as both a news journalist and a feature writer on New Zealand newspapers, Jill Worrall now works as a freelance travel writer, publicist and overseas tour guide. She has won a number of awards for her writing.
