The Lyrebird Press, based at the University of Melbourne, is a small publisher of scholarly books about music and music making in Australia and New Zealand. It shares the name of Editions de l’Oiseau-Lyre (The Lyrebird Press), the publishing house established in Paris by Melbourne-born publisher and patron of the arts Louise Hanson-Dyer (1884–1962) in 1932. Lyrebird upholds the L’Oiseau-Lyre tradition of scrupulously edited and attractively designed publications.
Since 2007 Lyrebird Press has published peer-reviewed monographs, edited collections of essays and critical editions of primary sources relating to any aspect of music and music making in Australasia. Topics considered for publication include film music, Indigenous music, popular music, composer studies, reception studies, genre studies, performance practice, histories of music making and biographies of composers, performers and patrons.
Note: Don't assume that because a publisher is listed in a genre, that your book is a good fit for their publishing program. Take the time to research the books each publisher has released to find the best matches.
