EAGLE'S COMPLETE TREES AND SHRUBS OF NEW ZEALAND
Audrey Eagle Te Papa Press $200
One of the very early book reviews I did on this blog back in November last year, and perhaps the longest post to date, was of this very fine book and so I was thrilled to see that it had been shortlisted for a number of awards:
*Illustrative section - Montana NZ Book Awards
*Booksellers Choice Award - Montana NZ Book Awards
*Best Illustrated Book - Spectrum Print Book Design Awards
*Best Cover - Spectrum Print Book Design Awards
This is a truly spectacular piece of scholarship and design and it will not surprise me if it wins all of the awards for which it is shortlisted.
Congratulations to Audrey Eagle and to her publishers, Te Papa Press.
