An imprint of Schwartz Books, Black Inc. is a leading independent Australian book publisher of fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We are passionate about diversity, inclusivity, social justice, new ideas and writing which informs, entertains and inspires. We are fiercely independent, but also strongly commercial. We publish local and international commercial mass-market titles under our Nero imprint, and children’s books under Piccolo Nero. Our La Trobe University Press imprint brings leading scholars and exports to deliver books of high intellectual quality, substance and originality. Schwartz Books also publishes the issue-defining journals Quarterly Essay and Australian Foreign Affairs.
