Yes I must admit I am a bit of a sucker for a BEEEaaaUUtIIFULL book!! This one would be the IDEAL pressie for expats who have forgotten the grass roots achievers. The creative outlet of Jessie Casson. Check her out here at Clever Bastards!
“Award-winning jam-maker. Rodeo cowboy. Women’s Coal Shovelling Champion. These seemingly disparate individuals, along with forty more from the length and breadth of the country, are brought together in photographer Jessie Casson’s loving tribute to the unsung New Zealand achiever, Champions: New Zealand Winners. Although rarely publicised outside of their home towns, each winner in the book is a testament to the passion and determination of the people of Aotearoa. The portraits are the fruit of Casson’s desire to capture the dedication, self-belief and good old Kiwi ‘can-do’ attitude that make us who we are.
This book is destined to be a classic and would make a wonderful Kiwi gift.”
