Printed books

The printed books are royalty-free but cover the cost of printing, postage, handling, and the Australian War Memorial Shop staff. They are printed by the Ascent Group, a disability employer.

All printed books are:

  • A5 size (half an A4 page) spiral bound, and
  • very tough and extremely difficult to tear (halfway between a baby’s board book and a paperback children’s book).

There are three options for obtaining the award-winning books:

1. You can order their royalty-free printed books here using our downloadable order form here: Order-form-for-individuals-schools-libraries-early-childhood-services-and-organisations
