The State Library has a long history of publishing high-quality books and journals. Drawing on our extraordinary pictures, maps, manuscripts and rare books collections, we work with some of Australia's best publishing houses to produce books on topics ranging from architecture, design and photography to biography and social history. To learn about books published by recipients of Library fellowships, visit our fellows gallery.
