A.W. Reed, author of Māori Place Names

A.W. Reed, author of Māori Place Names, played upon his surname when designing the logo for his publishing company, A.H. & A.W. Reed. The logo features the raupō, New Zealand’s native reed.

Raupō is also a place name – there are settlements of this name near Ruawai in Northland and inland from Greymouth – and the definition is included in the fourth edition. Revising editor Peter Dowling was himself a former publishing manager at Reed Publishing.

The late A.W. Reed
