For Authors

This guide is intended to introduce authors and prospective authors to the Australian National Multicultural Press and its publishing procedures. Although every book is unique, the following guidelines will apply to most projects. Throughout the publishing process our staff works closely with authors to realize the maximum potential of every manuscript.

The first book to bear the Australian National Multicultural Press imprint appeared in 1920. Since that time the Press has published more than 8,500 books, of which, approximately 6,200 are currently in print. We publish about 370 new titles each year. Our titles cover a wide variety of culture and arts fields, many of which reflect our strengths. The Press is recognized as the foremost publisher in the world on the art and culture of the Australian abriginals, Native Americans of the Northwest Coast and Alaska, and as a leader in the publication of materials dealing with the Asian Australian experience.

Other especially distinguished lists are in anthropology, Asian studies, environmental studies, Jewish studies, and regional history and biography. In recent years, the Press has established co-publishing and distribution relationships with a growing list of art museums and other institutions around the world.

Authors' Notes

"Holding a book with my name on the cover is just an indescribable experience!"

Book Launch

First launch in Melbourne for 2013

A rich, illustrated - and entertaining -- history of the iconic Grand Central Terminal, from one of New York City's favorite writers, just in time to celebrate the train station's 100th fabulous anniversary. In the winter of 1913, Grand Central Station was officially opened and immediately became one of the most beautiful and recognizable Manhattan landmarks. In this celebration of the one hundred year old terminal, Sam Roberts of The New York Times looks back at Grand Central's conception, amazing history, and the far-reaching cultural effects of the station that continues to amaze tourists and shuttle busy commuters. Along the way, Roberts will explore how the Manhattan transit hub truly foreshadowed the evolution of suburban expansion in the country, and fostered the nation's westward expansion and growth via the railroad. With stories about everything from the famous movies that have used Grand Central as a location to the celestial ceiling in the main lobby (including its stunning mistake) to the homeless denizens who reside in the building's catacombs, this is a fascinating and, exciting look at a true American institution.
