Te Papa Press titles shortlisted for Montana New Zealand Book Awards

Te Papa Press has two titles shortlisted for the prestigious Montana New Zealand Book Awards 2005.

Icons Nga Taonga: From the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is shortlisted for the Illustrative category, and Toss Woollaston: A Life in Letters edited by Jill Trevelyan is shortlisted for the Biography category.

‘It's a great thrill to see these publications acknowledged,” says Claire Murdoch, Managing and Commissioning Editor of Te Papa Press, ’The short-listing of Icons Nga Taonga recognises the excellent scholarship happening ‘behind the scenes’ at the museum, as well as the great collaborative effort on the part of the many curators, writers and photographers who worked to make Icons happen so beautifully.

‘As the first dedicated museum publisher in New Zealand, Te Papa Press has a special role in bringing local art, culture, history and people – our stories in the broadest sense – into print.

‘We were overwhelmed by the public’s response to Toss Woollaston's letters (Toss Woollaston: A Life in Letters, edited by Jill Trevelyan). This nomination is further confirmation of the quality of Jill Trevelyan's work and of the book itself.’

Finalists will be announced at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards ceremony on Monday 25 July.
