We are thrilled that Ten x Ten: Art at Te Papa, our new book about the national art collection, has been longlisted by the judges of the 2018 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.

This endorsement comes on the tail of very positive reviews for the book, which was written by the art team and edited by Curator Photography Athol McCredie.

Other titles nominated for the Illustrated Non-Fiction category include UNDREAMED OF... 50 years of the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship by Priscilla Pitts and Andrea Hotere, Gordon Walters: New Vision by Zara Stanhope (Commissioning Editor), Lucy Hammonds, Laurence Simmons, Julia Waite, and Strangers Arrive: Emigrés and the Arts in New Zealand, 1930–1980 by Leonard Bell.
