Clerestory Press is a small publishing company that was established in 1994 with the publication of The Arts Centre of Christchurch Then and Now. Most of our publications are limited editions.

We publish books that need to be published:

  • Books of historical and cultural importance, both national and local
  • Collections of winning writing by young New Zealanders
  • Books of literary and educational significance
