Triad magazine cover

The Triad, a magazine edited by Charles Baeyertz, was largely devoted to reviews of literature, live performances and visual art. Its reviewers, in particular Frank Morton and Baeyertz himself, were notorious for not pulling any punches when reviewing what they considered to be sub-standard works. The Triad was published in New Zealand from 1893 until 1914, when it moved to Australia.
