Melbournestyle to be distributed by Walker Books

Walker Books Australia is delighted to announce that they have taken on the Australian distribution of award-winning Melbourne publishing house, Melbournestyle, beginning April 2019.

Melbournestyle began as a celebration of Melbourne, founded in 1994 by husband and wife team Maree Coote and Lex Ridgeway. Launching with gifts like The Melbourne Cups & Saucers, they soon added an independent publishing imprint, Melbournestyle Books and began with their first title, The Melbourne Book: A History of Now. Based in their Melbournestyle Gallery in South Melbourne, their unique offering includes children’s books that have been awarded prizes around the globe.

“Melbournestyle Books is proud to announce a new partnership with Walker Books Australia as distributor of our titles in Australia and New Zealand. We look forward to working with the friendly, professional and dynamic team at Walker, and to exciting new opportunities to expand our readership base. Walker Books is widely recognised as a market leader both in Australia and in New Zealand, and the proof is in the quality children’s books that fill their list. This partnership offers a welcome expertise that will allow us to focus on what we do best, and I’m absolutely delighted our books are in the experienced hands of the Walker team,” says Maree Coote, Publisher of Melbournestyle Books.

“We are very excited to welcome Melbournestyle to the Walker stable. It is wonderful to represent a list that is such a perfect fit for us. It is very special for us to represent a local Australian publisher. We look forward to finding new opportunities for the list as we introduce Melbournestyle to our Australian and New Zealand booksellers.” says Angela Van Den Belt, President of Walker Books Australia.
