I'm a sucker for early twentieth century antipodean commercial art and this book, 
Promoting Prosperity - The Art of Early New Zealand Advertising by Peter Alsop & Gary Stewart, looks like a fascinating read. From Craig Potton Publishing PR:
This is a book about the art of early New Zealand advertising, before colour photography and TV changed the media landscape forever. With over 600 images and 13 essays by respected commentators, it fills an important gap in our art history as the first dedicated and extensive collection of this rich material. But more than that, Promoting Prosperity is a celebration of the dreams and aspirations of early New Zealanders, and of our development as an emerging nation. It profiles many of the economic and social foundations that once made New Zealand the envy of the world; successes that offer an inspiring reminder that no challenge is too big to overcome and no opportunity beyond reach.

Promoting Prosperity will leave you in no doubt as to the quality of New Zealand's early commercial artists, and of our entrepreneurial and creative roots. Be inspired and promote prosperity.
(Hat Tip - Darian Zam.)

I'll be posting an article by A. B. Clark this week on the mobile printing unit used by the New Zealand Army Division. Clark's article was originally featured in A History of Printing in New Zealand and reprinted in a Korero Army bulletin during World War Two. Mobile printing units were used to produce Divisional orders and anything else 'from a louse ticket to a short catalogue'. New Zealand cartoonists such as Nevile Lodge, who honed his skills as an artist during the three years he spent in Italian and German prisoner-of-war camps, contributed to some of these wartime publications.
