Bridget Williams Books publishing masterpiece Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History charts the sweep of Māori history from ancient origins to the twenty-first century. Through narrative and images, it offers a striking overview of the past, grounded in specific localities and histories.
The largest and most complex publication I have designed, Tangata Whenua demanded a lifetime's creative and production expertise to realise. The design brings culture, history and science together in a highly structured yet vibrant journey through time.
'One of the most significant books on the Māori world ever written, this is the sort of generous canvas on which we can paint our future.'
