New Zealand Illustrated: Pictorial Books from the Victorian Age is the next one off the blocks. It takes place from 29 October to 2 December. I was lucky enough to get a behind-the-scenes peek as curator Peter Vangioni let me put the gloves on and have a look at some of the library taonga. Here are some photos.
Emily Harris’ New Zealand Flowers was a beauty too. I loved her plain descriptions. Further exploration revealed a lovely set of images Emily Cumming Harris on DigitalNZ.
