The Dressmaker

Duffy & Snellgrove is an Australian independent book publisher that has published the first books by writers including Peter Robb, Rosalie Ham, and John Birmingham. We have also published important new work by Les Murray, Robert Gray and Mungo MacCallum, and classics from the likes of Ruth Park and Peter Ryan.

We stopped publishing new books in 2005. Most of our titles are still available from bookstores (our distributor is Macmillan) and a dozen or so are also out there as ebooks. For details please see the catalogue part of this site.

Rosalie Ham’s much-loved novel The Dressmaker was filmed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, with Kate Winslet, Judy Davis and Hugo Weaving in the main roles. The film was released in October 2015, was hugely popular, and won a stack of awards. Our congratulations to all involved, including wonderful producer – and Rosalie’s childhood friend – Sue Maslin.
