The New Zealand Essential Guide is 160 pages of full color travel information, tips, maps and more. The new cover format includes an expansion flap on both front and back covers. Cover 2 and its facing page and cover 3 with its facing page will depict frequently used maps in New Zealand. The expansion flaps make these maps bigger and more detailed than the competition. The cover appearance has been created with a distinctive new design while still allowing the new formats to integrate with existing titles on the shelf. Each title now has an atlas integrated into the body of the book, up to 32 more pages of detailed, full color atlas maps - no need to carry those extra maps!
