These have included such natural history titles as the landmark New Zealand’s Native Trees, the NZ Post Book of the Year in 2012, and other seminal natural history books like Moa: The Life and Death of New Zealand’s Legendary Bird. In the area of art and culture some noteworthy books have included Grahame Sydney Paintings 1974-2014 , Colin McCahon: A Question of Faith and Selling the Dream, an acclaimed book about New Zealand tourism posters.

Historical themes have been well covered through such titles as the bestselling Molesworth, and the recent hit Tramping: A New Zealand History. An important offshoot of its publishing has always been an interest in contemporary issues, with perhaps most prominent being the work of investigative writer Nicky Hager, including the highly controversial book Dirty Politics.
