Our recently launched Text Classics series is a project close to our hearts: a list of outstanding Australian classics, many of which were out of print, brought to a new audience with a gorgeous series look by our award-winning designer, W.H. Chong. This is a bright, fresh, and attractively priced selection of great Australian books by our most celebrated, most awarded writers, including Kate Grenville, Peter Temple, Peter Corris, Helen Garner, and Henry Handel Richardson. Each book features an introduction by a prominent Australian figure, including Germaine Greer, Sonya Hartnett, Joan London, and Bruce Beresford.
At Text we want to publish books that make a difference to people's lives. We believe that reading should be a marvelous experience, that every book you read should somehow change your life if only by a fraction. We love the phrase "lost in a book"—that's where we want our readers to be. We hope that somewhere on our list you will find the book that makes the world a different place for you.
