About our site

We import and distribute books on contemporary culture, specialising in architecture, art and design. We have always sought to make available books that fall outside of the scope of the mainstream publishing industry in Australia.

We have been importing and distributing books for over 20 years, always based in the inner-northern suburbs of Melbourne. We supply retailers – independent bookshops, museum and gallery shops, design shops, kids’ shops and others – all over Australia. We are a small, independent business and over the years have provided employment for many local artists, designers and writers.

Our publishers are from Europe, Asia, Australia and the USA. Some have an extensive publishing program, others only publish two or three titles a year but between them they put out some of the most interesting and exactingly edited and designed books in their fields.
