custom publishing

Custom publishing.

Publishing. We know it inside out.

13 years. 350 books. 250+ brochures. A new story each day.

… and we’d love you to be our next satisfied customer.

For the past 13 years, Longueville has specialised in delivering high value corporate and government custom publishing services, and specialist books for businesspeople, through inspiring words and beautiful designs.

We believe strongly in the power of combining printed books and eBooks for business publications. Print is not dead. It’s just that it now has a twin, the eBook. Both have their benefits. Both have their specific audience. Unlike many siblings however, they live very comfortably together and in an increasingly online world, the power of a printed book is undeniable.

As a custom publisher of books specifically, we will provide you with a wealth of experience in this industry.

We are also proud to say we are a member of the Australian Federal Government creative and design services panel, providing graphic design and layout services to over 35 government departments.

publishing strategies

Design, editing, proofreading, and writing. Yes, we offer those services.

We also like to look at the bigger picture to ensure your publication suits your reader in every way. We begin by developing a strategy for your publication and through our editorial process we transform your work into compelling and practical writing that will provide your audience with engaging reading.

One of our specialities is creating books for businesses. You can read more about how to write your book and how a book can benefit you and your business at our blog:






editorial services

We believe in the importance of great writing and the power of storytelling for business. Our writers and editors will help you present your work clearly, elegantly and in plain English.

Our ambition is to help you move beyond the what you do, to tell your clients the authentic story of why you do what you do, ensuring your communications engage and inspire your audience.







graphic design services

Everyone judges a book by its cover and its internal design. Our designers will create work that, when bonded with words, makes your publication memorable and engaging.

about us

Longueville Media is a specialist publisher of commemorative books, corporate or research reports, and government projects.

Our professional and academic book publishing background has instilled in us a rigour about the way design and editorial work together, that we apply to all our work.

In 2015 we are celebrating 13 years and we look forward to many more years of delivering our clients engaging communications and advising them on how to make the most of their publishing projects.
