About the book:
Black is a gorgeously illustrated celebration and exploration of New Zealand’s obsession with clothing ourselves in black – in society, power and politics, cultural icons, sport, fashion, film and music, from the little black dress to the All Blacks jersey, Dunedin Goths, the business people of Lambton Quay and the patched jackets of gang members.

New Zealanders choose to present ourselves to the world wearing black – and not just the All Blacks, Tall Blacks and Silver Ferns. Many of our fashion designers choose black as the cornerstone of their collections, and a great many of our cultural icons (think Fred Dagg) are also characterised by wearing black
