The team from Unity Books Auckland were kept busy!
New Zealand's biggest book in 2012? It may well be as it weighs in at a massive 2.85 kg ! Another biggie from Random House - The Engine Room is a mere 1.90 kg
Great launch, truly impressive book, sure to be on many a Christmas wish-list.
My warm congratulations to the authors, designer Fiona Lascelles, and publisher; this is world class publishing and all involved should feel very proud.
