"The Little Kiwi Book" is a collection of iconic images of the kiwi. Over the years, New Zealand's national symbol has found its way into all manner of representation, from the roofs of the old Hutton Kiwi Bacon factories to jewellery, to ornament (the balustrades of the Dominion Museum in Wellington) as well as graphic design and commercial branding. There is emphasis placed on three-dimensional images of the kiwi found in sculpture throughout the country.
