Rewi: Āta haere, kia tere in the bestsellers this week


Reading room’s bestselling book list in October featured Jade Kake and Jeremy Hansen’s handsome tome Rewi: Āta haere, kia tere, and Steve Braunias had some comments on the book:

Rewi is likely the most beautifully, sumptuously designed book of the year, a publishing masterpiece; it's a tribute to the late architect Rewi Thompson (Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Raukawa), told in 456 pages with plans, drawings, sketches and photos.
