Wrinkly Tin: Corrugated Iron in New Zealand

by Stuart Thompson

Born in British factories, adopted by Kiwi pioneers, reborn as an architectural fashion material – here is the story and romance of corrugated iron, which starts as black sand on our beaches and becomes the wrinkly tin on our homes.

This book is an A to Z of corrugated iron – it turns up on aircraft, army tanks, baches, barbecues, barns, boatsheds, canoes, chimneys, chookhouses, churches, dog kennels, dunnies, farm sheds, fences, goathouses, grain silos, haystacks, huts, long-drops, pigpens, rotundas, sculptures, shearing sheds, stables, toboggans, tree-huts, umbrellas, verendahs, water tanks, and even a zoo elephant.

Paperback, 2005, 128pages, in very good condition
