NLA Publishing creates books that tell stories by and about Australians. We explore the Library’s extensive collections to share Australia’s culture and history.
Working with leading writers, illustrators and designers, we produce award-winning non-fiction and children’s titles in the fields of history, art, photography, the environment and literature. We shine a light on the Library’s treasures, interpreting them to offer a greater understanding of our country and its many peoples.
