For five years, Lucy Revill interviewed and photographed Wellingtonians on her blog, The Residents. The experience taught her about her hometown of Pōneke, its resilience, and how people’s personal style and values are reflected in their private spaces. The Residents: Made in Wellington is the culmination of this project. This coffee-table book shares 38 inspiring stories about how people – some prominent, some unsung heroes – have been shaped by life in the capital. With rare vulnerability, they allow Lucy into their homes, businesses and studios, giving a behind-the-scenes look at how they live and work in food, fashion, arts, small business and more. The book features Fat Freddy’s Drop’s Chris ‘Mu’ Faiumu, twentyseven names’ Anjali Burnett and Rachel Easting, Eboni Waitere of Huia Publishers, Sophie Kasoylides of The Greek Food Truck, Vijay Parbhu of Dixon Street Shoe Repairs, and Monique Fiso of Hiakai, amongst many others. Come join Lucy and Unity Books for an evening celebrating the spirit of Wellingtonians, collect your copy from the PledgeMe and hear about how this book (FINALLY) got made in Wellington.
