Object Book Group is based on a monthly book selected for its resonance with art, craft and design. Fiction, non-fiction we’re not fussy. We’re into great reads on the topics we love!

Object Book Group is a new initiative by Australian Design Centre for our creative community to talk with each other, and with us, about books about craft, design, art, fiction and non-fiction.

Join Object Book Group on Facebook and be part of a community that loves to read and talk about creative practice and people.
