Russell Clark - Living in a Maori Village

Prolific New Zealand illustrator Russell Clark previously featured in posts here and here. Living in a Maori Village is another example of his work for publisher A.H. & A. W. Reed. Written by co-publisher Alexander Wyclif Reed who wrote many books about the indigenous people of New Zealand and Australia. Reed had no firsthand knowledge of the Maori, deriving his research from secondary sources. Reed considered his role as an author to be a populariser and simplifier.

One of my favourite book covers. A prolific artist of which the list of illustration credits keeps growing.
