An Isolated Incident

An Isolated Incident

Emily Maguire

Published by Picador Australia


A fantastic psychological thriller about everyday violence, the media’s obsession with pretty dead girls, the grip of grief and the myth of closure, and the difficulties of knowing the difference between a ghost and a memory, between a monster and a man. Signed copies available!



Belanglo_Warwick Baker

Warwick Baker: Belanglo

Published by Perimeter Editions


Debut book by Australian photographer Warwick Baker. Created within the bounds of the Belanglo State Forest, Baker’s images forge a poignant taxonomy of this notorious landscape. The body of work is at once forensic, evidentiary and speculative in tenor, and makes use of both traditional & experimental documentary techniques. Limited edition 700.



The Hate Race

The Hate Race

Maxine Beneba-Clarke

Published by Hachette Australia


Suburban Australia. Sweltering heat. Three bedroom blonde-brick. Family of five. Beat-up Ford Falcon. Vegemite on toast. Maxine Beneba Clarke’s life is just like all the other Aussie kids on her street. Except for this one, glaring, inescapably obvious thing. The Hate Race is a powerful, funny, and at times devastating memoir about growing up black in white middle-class Australia.

52 Suburbs

52 Suburbs

Louise Hawson

Published by UNSW Press


When Hawson realised she was a stranger in her own city, she set herself a mission – to explore and photograph one new Sydney suburb a week for a year.  52 Suburbs reveals the Sydney beyond the postcard clichés of the harbour and beaches – places most tourists would never think to explore. Inspirational, adventurous and eye-opening, it captures Sydney’s vibrancy, multiculturalism and community in a refreshingly unconventional way.



Everyday_Emily Ferretti Everyday

Emily Ferretti

Published by Perimeter Editions


Gorgeous overview of the work of Australian artist Emily Ferretti. Ferretti’s oil-on-linen paintings of plants, domestic settings, sporting ephemera and architectural details are remarkable for their lightness of touch and subtleties in process, tonality and mark making, sidling the representational and abstract via a quiet, poetic tenor. Limited edition 700.



Another Night in Mullet Town

Another Night in Mullet Town

Steven Herrick

And one memorable night at the lake will change everything. An iridescent verse novel from award-winning author Steven Herrick that shines light on friendship, family and finding your way.
