Description
The aim of this book is to provide an introduction to New Zealand picture postcards beginning in 1897, when the first official postcard was published. The 25-year period that this book covers includes the boon years in New Zealand postcard production, 1903-1910 and World War 1.
As a lifelong collector, Leo Haks wondered what visual material would catch his eye when he moved to New Zealand to live with his partner and co-author Colleen Dallimore. Good examples of early New Zealand photographs were hard to find: however, many had been reproduced as postcards. This book is the result of collecting postcards through eight years of buying postcards in second-hand shops, from dealers and on-line.
