Erewhon is an independent academic press founded in 2014. Our mission is threefold. To encourage and disseminate scholarship, research, criticism and debate about New Zealand. To produce educational books by experts. And to help make New Zealand’s written heritage available to New Zealanders.

We don’t do blockbusters. But good ideas don’t need to fall by the wayside just because the national market for specialist books is small. Erewhon brings smart books to a core appreciative readership.

Rigorous editing, peer review and clean elegant design are integral to our books. We combine the flexible new world of digital technology with an artisan ethos.

These are early days for Erewhon Press. Keep an eye on our website as we scale up our activities over the next few years.
