Powerhouse Publications

POWERHOUSE PUBLISHING is the print and digital publishing division of the Powerhouse with over 70 titles in the back catalogue. The future-focused publishing house spans industrial design and the decorative arts, science, technology, architecture, textile and fashion design as well as the culinary arts, First Nations design, music, transport, astronomy and popular culture. While many of our publications are adjuncts to exhibitions and projects, they are conceived, commissioned and produced as high-quality books with an appeal to a national and international readership.
