About House of Books
Looking for the work of Thea Astley, Alan Marshall, Eleanor Dark, Dymphna Cusack, Katharine Susannah Pritchard, Xavier Herbert, Kylie Tennant, Miles Franklin, Marcus Clarke or Henry Handel Richardson? Or perhaps your favourite book by Blanche d'Alpuget, Thea Astley, Nick Earls, Andrew Riemer, Judith Armstrong or Rodney Hall - now long out of print?
At Allen & Unwin, we believe that good books should never die.
The House of Books aims to bring Australia's cultural and literary heritage to a broad audience by creating affordable print and ebook editions of the nation’s most significant and enduring writers and their work. The fiction, non-fiction, plays and poetry of generations of Australian writers published before the advent of ebooks will now be available to new readers, alongside a selection of more recently published books.
The House of Books is an eloquent collection of Australia's finest literary achievements, and the digital revolution is helping bring us all closer to the books and writers of Australia’s literary tradition.
From June 2012, the House of Books will make accessible a library of authors and their books at affordable prices to a whole new readership. Some books have long been out of print, some have recently slipped into oblivion but with new ebooks released every month for the remainder of 2012 (and beyond) the House of Books should be the first stop for all readers of Australian fiction and non-fiction.
Books will be available simultaneously as ebooks and print editions (using POD - print on demand technology).
Ask your local bookseller for the print editions - or they are available for purchase from the Allen & Unwin website.
Ebook editions are available from Readings, Pages & Pages and all Australian independent booksellers with an ebook platform, as well as from Kindle, Kobo, Google, Borders, Angus & Robertson, Dymocks, Booktopia, Collins and the Coop Bookshop.
