BWB books accompany National Library's He Tohu exhibition

BWB has produced books on three iconic New Zealand documents: He Whakaputanga/The Declaration of Independence (1835), Te Tiriti o Waitangi/The Treaty of Waitangi (1840), and The Women's Suffrage Petition/Te Petihana Whakamana Poti Wahine (1893).

These books, published in conjunction with the National Library, accompany a new permanent exhibition of the three documents at the National Library in Wellington. The He Tohu exhibition has attracted public and media attention since its opening in May.

The three He Tohu books feature full colour reproductions of the documents, introductions written by leading historians and fascinating short biographies of many of the signatories. The books are available individually, or as a box set.

Keep an eye on the BWB events page or the BWB Facebook page, as events discussing these documents continue!
