Books at Manic
Books at Manic import and distribute books on contemporary culture, specialising in architecture, art and design. They have always sought to make available books that fall outside of the scope of the mainstream publishing industry in Australia.
Books at Manic have been importing and distributing books for over 20 years, always based in the inner-northern suburbs of Melbourne. They are a small, independent business and over the years have provided employment for many local artists, designers and writers.
Their publishers are from Europe, Asia, Australia and the USA. Some have an extensive publishing program, others only publish two or three titles a year but between them they put out some of the most interesting and exactingly edited and designed books in their fields.
