Echo Publishing was formed by author Paul Campbell, and publisher Allan Mortensen, with the express purpose of producing high quality books recording the broad spectrum of New Zealand history, with an emphasis on the rural sector.
Our books concentrate on seldom seen photographic archives, be they in public or private collections.
Many photographs considered for publication may have been damaged over time, be it by moisture, dust or poor storage.
Employing exhaustive triage and the latest computer-generated graphic restoration techniques, followed by craftsman hand-printing on top quality paper stock, Echo Publishing staff have succeeded in recreating iconic pictorial accounts that record the growth of a nation through the actual eye-witnesses of the time.
We are based in Dargaville on the banks of the Kaipara Harbour in Northland, New Zealand giving us a unique insight and connection to local heritage.
