Title: Te Kupenga – 101 Stories of Aotearoa from the Turnbull
Author: KEITH MICHAEL
Published to mark 100 years since the establishment of the famous Alexander
Turnbull Library, one of New Zealand’s great storehouses, this energetic,
comprehensive book approaches the history of Aotearoa New Zealand through
101 remarkable objects.
Each tells a story, be it of discovery, courage, dispossession, conflict, invention,
creation, or conservation. The objects range from letters and paintings to journals,
photographs, posters, banners and books. The place each has in the patchwork of
the narrative creates a vivid overall view of the people of this place and the unique
histories they have made together.
An invaluable resource for schools and the home, and a great way to dive into our
history, Te Kupenga takes us deep inside the remarkable ATL collection and sheds
light on who we are.
