About Us

We're a (very) small social enterprise based in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. Run largely by a couple and our dog Echo (our quality control expert, see below), with the vital support of a small group of supporters, we've managed to combine our love of reading with our passion for supporting refugees and asylum seekers.

We do this by donating 50% of our profits to a charity called Amiculus: The Humble Friend Project, who work to advocate for equity, the relief of poverty and to bring about the full realisation of human rights.

EchoEcho reads another book to see if it passes her rigorous quality control check...

Our name actually comes from two major characters (Rosemary Waterlow & Philip Ravelston) in the George Orwell novel "Keep the Aspidistra Flying", both of whom try their best to support an aspiring poet.
