New Zealand is a great little country – and not just because we won the Rugby World Cup and the Lord of the Rings films were made here! At Castle we think that there is amazing value in unique books produced by New Zealanders (and Australasians) for New Zealand (and Australasia).

We keep our production quality high and our products unique.

And to show just how adamant we are about all this, we’ve got a new logo that we’re going to take every opportunity to display…


Sad news October 25, 2011

We at Castle were very saddened to hear of the recent passing of Dr Howard Harper.

The following is an excerpt from the obituary in the New Zealand Herald:

HARPER, Dr Howard Fife FRCF.¬†Passed away peacefully in London on 19 October 2011 after a lengthy illness, aged 80 years. It can truly be said that “a mighty Totara has fallen”. Raised in New Zealand, he spent 50 years of his life with his beloved wife Monica, in pioneering missionary and medical work in Central Asia. He was an indefatigable character who kept his focus on enabling people to see again physically and spiritually until the last weeks of his life.

At Castle we were honoured to be able to help tell his story through working on the book which his daughter Faith Goldberg compiled. He was a truly inspirational man who touched the lives of thousands of people. It is wonderful to think that this mostly unsung hero received some recognition in his home country towards the end of his life. We believe that his life and legacy will continue to be treasured for many years to come.
