Nobrow and Flying Eye Books to be distributed by Walker Books Australia and New Zealand

Walker Books Australia and New Zealand are delighted to announce that they will be the distributor for award-winning London-based visual publishing house, Nobrow, and their new children’s imprint, Flying Eye Books from the 1st of January 2016.

Nobrow was established in late 2008 as the joint creative endeavour of two alumni of London’s exclusive Central St Martin’s College, Sam Arthur and Alex Spiro, with a mission to provide a vibrant and innovative publishing platform for comics, illustration, and the graphic arts. Since that time Nobrow’s books have become established in the trade as showcasing great design, ground-breaking art and narrative, high production values and ethical production methods.

Nobrow’s children’s imprint, Flying Eye Books, was created in 2013 with a list designed for children aged three to 11. Seeking to retain the same attention to detail in design and excellence in illustrated content as its parent publisher, but with a focus on the craft of children’s storytelling and non-fiction, Flying Eye Books has carved out a unique niche in the children’s book market.

“We are very excited to be the Australian face of Flying Eye Books and Nobrow,” says Angela Van Den Belt, President of Walker Books Australia and New Zealand. “Nobrow are increasing their international reach, and it is a privilege for Walker Books to be representing these outstanding graphic titles in the Southern Hemisphere. It is wonderful to represent a list that is such a perfect fit for Walker. As publishers we both have carefully crafted and creatively driven lists that inspire a special relationship with booksellers."

Sam Arthur, Managing Director of Nobrow, has said of the partnership, “We are really delighted to be working with Walker Books Australia and believe they will help us reach even more readers in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s great to have the opportunity to work with people who share our core values and believe in what we do.”
