About us

Axiom started a life in books over 40 years ago

It remains a privately owned and operated business with an unswerving desire to maintain independence and ethical practice.

At that time we responded to a local South Australian need, distributing both non-fiction hardcover and fiction paperbacks.

Improvements have come about through a strong desire to produce our own list, predominantly Australian with a particular penchant for social history. Within this genre initial subjects have covered Tractors, Australian Aviation, Clydesdale and Working Horses, Shipwrecks, Classic Buildings, Australian Riverbooats, Holistic Life, Gems and Minerals. Current subjects are Heidelberg School, Native Plants of Victoria, Tractors, 1950s and Modern,  Shearers, Horse-Drawn Vehicles and John Gould: an Australian Perspective.

The opportunities continue to evolve as we’ve now recognised subject areas are varied and many. In the ever changing world of publishing and indeed the future business of bookselling, Axiom believes the directions undertaken to date and future intentions will ensure continued strong growth.
