"Stone, Bone & Jade, 26 New Zealand artists"

By Donn Salt
Published by Bateman
This book examines the work, life and influences of 26 New Zealand artists using the mediums described in the title. In September 2002 a new resource management plan was approved by the Maori deemed guardians of New Zealand jade, and so the introductory section is a little outdated. However this does not detract from the quality of the main body of the publication.
