Traditionally books on Māori art have described the work as either ‘traditional’ (as in the arts of carving, weaving, painting) or ‘contemporary’, that is work produced post-1950s. Maori Art: History, Architecture, Landscape & Theory presents a unique focus on Māori art by exploring the connection between the traditional and contemporary, and the place of Māori art within an international context. In doing so, it provides a framework for looking at Māori art in a new way.

This book is extensively illustrated with 300 art works, landscapes and meeting houses, with many never before published images, including 90 specially commissioned photographs from renowned New Zealand photographers Mark Bentley Adams and Haruhiko Sameshima.
