This week’s book in the shop window is…

This week’s book in the shop window is…mine. I spotted two copies of my Bateman Illustrated History of New Zealand in the window of Capital Books this week – one of the two indie bookstores in Wellington. Good stuff.

The book to the left, Richard Wolfe’s Auckland and Northland, is the next after mine in a series of regional histories – my Hawke’s Bay and East Coast was published in 2011, also by Bateman.

I should add that the Bateman Illustrated History of New Zealand, is available in Capital Books,  in other good New Zealand bookstores and internationally from the publisher’s web-shop. Go on…you know you want to…

    Without a doubt, my favorite–so far–of the images that have appeared on your blog. Congrats, Matthew! BTW, I have a couple of friends–seasoned world travelers–who are beginning to plan a trip to New Zealand. Of course, I told them about you and your books. Word of mouth–anywhere in the world–always helps, I think.

    • Hi – many thanks. It’s hard to get featured in shop windows – there are so many books competing for attention. I had a chat with the guy who owns this shop a few weeks back, but didn;t know he was going to feature them like this. I must go back to autograph the stock copies.

      Thank you for the shout-out on Twitter and highighting my book to your friends – very much appreciated. And yes, word of mouth is the way to go. The world is an ever-shrinking place these days, thanks to social networking. Thanks,

  2. I bounced into B&N briefly and did not see it. Do you know if they are carrying it?
