The country's longest-standing scenic book, A Portrait of New Zealand depicts the landscapes of the North and South Islands in over 200 glorious photographs. The book was first published in 1982 in two separate volumes, with the combined edition published in 1988 and reprinted every year since. Today, with over 200,000 sales to its credit, A Portrait of New Zealand is a Platinum title on the Premier New Zealand Bestsellers list - a statistic that testifies to the book's immense appeal and its high value for money. The current edition contains the same well-loved images but has been given new colour reproduction throughout in order to restore the spectacular quality of the original photographs. Errol Brathwaite's original text has been revised and rewritten by the multi-award-winning journalist and writer Jill Worrall, who was voted Cathay Pacific Travel Writer of the Year in 2005.
