About Us

Hyndman Publishing is the culmination of a 90 year, three generation, association with the New Zealand book trade. It began with Hyndman's Booksellers, which was established in Invercargill in 1906, and relocated to Dunedin in 1937.

In 1991 the publishing division was established, initially specialising in local books. The success of this venture led to the establishment of a separate company - Hyndman Publishing. In 1996 the retail arm, Hyndman's Booksellers, was sold, allowing the directors to concentrate their energies solely on publishing.

They write:

* We have many years of experience in the NZ book trade.
* Publications are released at carefully managed intervals, enabling a focused approach to each.
* Extensive distribution , including the smaller stores which other publishers often overlook. Sales are also generated through our fundraising company which supplies Schools, Pre-schools, Churches & Sports Teams nationwide, allowing us to reach a much wider market than most other publishers.
* Total sales in excess of 1.2 million books.
* Average sales of 30 000 copies per title (multiple reprints) – a good seller in New Zealand is 10,000 copies.
* Many of our titles have spent time on the NZ Bestseller's List.
