Magabala Books: 30 years of Indigenous publishing - in pictures

Magabala Books was born in 1984, when a group of Indigenous elders from the Kimberley in Western Australia decided to establish their own publishing house focused on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers and illustrators, and telling Indigenous stories. Magabala publishes for a general audience across memoir, poetry, fiction and non-fiction, with a strong focus on literature for children and young adults. 10 August marks the 30th anniversary of the publication of Magabala's first title, Mayi: Some Bush Fruits of the West Kimberley by Merrilee Lands. Here is a selection of their works over three decades.
