Ford Street is a successful small independent Australian publisher of books for children and young adults. We publish around eight titles a year, ranging from picture books through to novels and non-fiction for older readers. Ford Street’s publisher is renowned Australian author, Paul Collins, who has written extensively for both the local and international markets.
We have a strong presence in both schools and bookshops around Australia through Macmillan Distribution Services and INT Books. The latter is our exclusive NZ distributor. Off-shore readers are welcome to purchase our print books via our shopping cart at http://www.fordstreetpublishing.com/index.php/ford-street-titles/books
Ford Street punches above its weight with critical acclaim in journals, newspapers and on the web.
Successes include short-listings in the NSW and Victorian Premiers’ awards and the Northern Territory Awards. In 2011, The Glasshouse became one of only four Australian books ever to be chosen for IBBY’s (International Board on Books for Young People) ‘50 Outstanding Books Exhibition’. This prestigious exhibition will be launched at the Bologna Book Fair in March.
