It’s extremely busy and exciting year at ANU Press so far! We’ve published 44 titles, bringing our current total to 812 published titles, and expect to publish another 11 titles before the Christmas shut down.
The Press continues to experience a huge response to its publications, with a record 2.3 million downloads so far this year. We would like to thank our authors for continuing to provide the Press with such compelling and engaging publications and for all the work you do in promoting your titles.
In-house we have been working on several unique titles due to publish late 2018 and early 2019. Atlas of Butterflies and Diurnal Moths in the Monsoon Tropics of Northern Australia is the only reference offering an up-to-date comprehensive atlas of the butterflies and diurnal moths in the Top End and Kimberley regions of the Australian Monsoon Tropics of northern Australia. Illustrated with more than 250 dynamic full-colour photographs, it is sure to be one of our biggest and most beautiful titles.
Another exciting title we are working on is the Rosalie Gascoigne: The Catalogue Raisonné. This is a superb publication about an important artist whose work is highly regarded in the canon of Australian art. This is the first art catalogue produced by ANU Press and the Press’ designer, Teresa, has truly outdone herself with the stunning layout and design for this book.

The Publication Subsidy has now closed and will reopen in April 2019.
The Subsidy provides funds for exceptional works by eligible authors publishing through ANU Press. If your book has been accepted for publication with the Press, you may be entitled to a grant of up to $3,000 to assist with the costs of copyediting and indexing. (Note that the subsidy will not be approved for commissioning cover designs or book layout, as these services are part of ANU Press’ publication process.)
Please look out for our alerts on the ANU website for more information.
