Our Story

Books for Life is what we believe.

At Peribo that’s the way we think about books. A great book is with you for life, whether it’s on your bookshelf, on your coffee table or in your heart……

Books enrich us, books entertain us and books inform our life experience.

Peribo was founded in 1987 out of a desire to offer an exclusive high-quality range of local and international publications to booksellers in Australia.

From that day to this, Peribo has focused on the importance of knowing the publishing world, knowing our customers and distributing a wide range of interesting and useful titles to enhance the range of books available in bookshops and specialist retailers throughout Australia.

Over the years Peribo expanded the range of publishers represented to include many leading local and international independent publishers of illustrated books, classic and contemporary fiction, gift and humour, popular culture and a wide range of non-fiction. Our range of art, architecture, children’s, fashion, graphic design, interior design and military books includes many of the most desirable high-quality publications available in the world today.

Sales, marketing and distribution expertise are at the heart of Peribo – whether launching a new publisher or growing our existing publishers, we look for the very best sales opportunities for every book.

Right place. Right time. Right book.
