Description

THIS TITLE IS NOW OUT OF PRINT.

Finalist in the Illustrated Non-fiction category in the 2014 NZ Post Book Awards.

Look to the past in order to forge the future – according to Maori proverb – hoki whakamuri, kia anga whakamua.

This is a book about the art of early New Zealand advertising, before colour photography and TV changed the media landscape forever. With over 600 images and 13 essays by respected commentators, it fills an important gap in our art history as the first dedicated and extensive collection of this rich material. But more than that, Promoting Prosperity is a celebration of the dreams and aspirations of early New Zealanders, and of our development as an emerging nation. It profiles many of the economic and social foundations that once made New Zealand the envy of the world; successes that offer an inspiring reminder that no challenge is too big to overcome and no opportunity beyond reach.

Promoting Prosperity will leave you in no doubt as to the quality of New Zealand’s early commercial artists, and of our entrepreneurial and creative roots. Be inspired and promote prosperity.
