Welcome to New Zealand

A celebration of Kiwi hospitality! This is a collection of 450 photographs of New Zealand’s most interesting ‘welcome signs’ — the signs at the entrance to almost every town, city and village in the country.

It’s a fascinating alternative to the usual pictorial books of New Zealand, whether you want it as a gift for a visitor or to remind yourself why we’re such a friendly nation.

The book has been widely acclaimed, featuring on TV One’s Breakfast (Paul Henry: “It’s brilliant”) and TV3’s Campbell Live.
