Abstract:

With the endorsement of the New Zealand Rugby Union, this is a book about the All Blacks of a type never before published. It traces the history of rugby's most notable and most successful team over more than a century entirely in pictures. Drawing on archives and contemporary sources in New Zealand and overseas, the All Blacks are seen like they have never been seen before. Action shots underpin the work, but New Zealand's enduringly most successful sportsmen are also depicted in candid shots off the field. It is a sporting legacy as seen through the lens of photographers through the ages - using bulky plate glass cameras to the latest digital models. The players themselves, where they played, how they played are all depicted. Complementing the lavish array of photographs, more than ever previously published in a single rugby book, are informative captions by one of New Zealand's most respected rugby chroniclers, Ron Palenski.
