'I have had the honour of overseeing the publication of Books+Publishing (B+P) for the past 12 years, during which time I have worked with a group of talented and passionate industry professionals, most of whom remain member and supporters of the B+P family.

The opportunity to bring B+P home to local ownership presented an irresistible challenge and is a labour of love.' (Gary Pengelly, Editorial introduction)
