Landfall is New Zealand's oldest extant literary journal. One predecessor was another Caxton Press journal, the irregularly published Book, edited by Anton Vogt.[1] Denis Glover, of Caxton Press, visited Charles Brasch in London while on leaving during World War 2, and it was then the two "discussed the idea for a new, professionally produced literary journal in New Zealand".[2]

First published in 1947[3] by Caxton Press, under the editorship of Brasch, the magazine features new fiction and poetry, biographical and critical essays, cultural commentary, and reviews of books, art, film, drama and dance.

Additionally, the journal showcases original works of art in full colour.

Landfall is published twice annually, in May and November by the Otago University Press. As of 2006, it consists of a paperback publication of about 200 pages, selling for about NZ$29.95. A website version of the journal publishes new literary reviews monthly.

Brasch edited Landfall until 1966 when it was edited by Robin Dudding. Since 2010[4] and as of 2015 it is edited by David Eggleton.[5]
