First ever book sale at Te Papa Press

First ever book sale at Te Papa Press

Te Papa Press, Aotearoa New Zealand’s unique museum publisher, is holding its first ever book sale from Sunday 1 March with up to 70 per cent off its award-winning titles.

The sale includes a range of titles including 100 Amazing Tales from Aotearoa, the best Kiwi children’s non-fiction book of 2013, and celebrated biographer Jill Trevelyan’s Rita Angus: An Artist’s Life.

Claire Murdoch, Publisher at Te Papa Press, says the sale is the first in its 17 year history and unlikely to be repeated.

“A Te Papa Press sale is a rare bird indeed but we’re delighted to confirm the sighting. We hope readers enjoy the chance this March and April to stock up on some of our beloved and award-winning books about New Zealand’s art, culture and natural world,” said Ms Murdoch.

The opportunity to offer the special prices arose from a change in the distributor used by Te Papa Press. Due to the Penguin Random House merger, Te Papa Press’s new sales partner will be Archetype Book Agents, and Te Papa Press titles will be distributed by Upstart Distribution.

Sale items are available exclusively through Te Papa Store, both in-store and online at

The sale ends 30 April 2015.
