Well, printing is finished and we’re counting down until bookshop release date 9th November 2009. I couldn’t find a good reason not to share the cover with you. So here it is:
Update: Internal pages added to view below.
I’m really proud of this book - my seventh to date. This one is key - it’s my heartfelt work and showcases favourite places and images. Click for a large view. I’ll give you a sneek at some pages shortly if you want.
I have a hope, and tiny suspicion, that it’s going to make a few Kiwis teary eyed. Actually this arrived 2 minutes ago from Kara of Herkimer Coffee in Seattle when I showed her last week:
“Thanks so much for sharing your book with me. Ian and I were taking a look. This is a must, your pics are ah-mazing! We were about in tears, oh the beauty!..”
I’d love to hear your reaction if you’d care to leave a comment below… Thanks, Rob

Just wanted to share with you a use of one of our images we’re proud of. For 46 years the United Nations Handbook has been printed as the only comprehensive guide to the United Nations system, and how it works. It summarises all UN Organisations and provides essential info on their aims, structures and memberships.
The Handbook is used by all those who operate in, or with, the UN. And currently they have a Rob Suisted photo on the cover! And one of our iconic images at that. We’re pretty stoked about the many thousands of copies globally, some of which are being thumbed by some pretty important folks!

Andrew Crowe has written over 40 titles so far so it’s great to be involved again……. > > > Continue reading : full post + comments > > >
