Abstract/Summary Is the Australian publishing industry flourishing or floundering? - What is the future of the book? - Has lifestyle replaced literary publishing? - Have new technologies revolutionised the nature of the industry? Making Books addresses these questions and many others in a wide-ranging study of contemporary Australian publishing. It also provides a sophisticated introduction to the structure and dynamics of the Australian publishing industry which turns over almost two billion dollars a year. Leading industry practitioners and academics analyse the industry in the context of social, cultural and legal forces. They write revealingly on the culture of the publishing house, editorial practice and policy, Bookscan, new technologies and the 'decline' of literary publishing. Making Books will be an indispensable companion for arts industry professionals, those in the publishing industry, and scholars of book history or publishing studies--publisher.
