              We have tattooing in the blood in New Zealand, and styles worn with pride here in Aotearoa are appreciated worldwide by admirers of beautiful design. And in the early 2010s, tattooing is going through a renaissance. Chris Hoult immersed himself in the Kiwi tattoo scene from 2011 ...and 2012, and brought writer-musician Steve Forbes along for the ride.What they record in New Zealand Tattoo is the view from the studios of New Zealand now, with profiles of leading tattoists including Merv OConnor, Gordon Hatfield, Monique Mataga, Jason Parkinson and Te Rangitu Netana. Combining stunning photography and snappy text, New Zealand Tattoo is a contemporary celebration of tattooing here in its three rich tradiions: Ta Moko (Maori tattoo), Tatau (Pacific Islands tattoo) and Tattoo (European and Asian forms).

              Titirangi, probably Aucklands most beautiful suburb and on the edge of the dramatic Waitakere Ranges, is truly the fringe of heaven. This richly illustrated book, compiled over many years by the West Auckland Historical Society, tracks the areas evolution from successive Maori se...ttlements, the first European arrivals, forest clearings and the beginnings of Titirangi village through to the post-war era when artists and writers began gravitating to the community as its regenerating forest reached for the sky. Titirangi: Fringe of Heaven collects specialist accounts of Maori history, prominent settlers, architecture, the arts and the environment with personal recollections of Titirangi life. A must for anyone with a connection to this beautiful area or with an interest in the arts and environment.
