Pacific Island books was
founded in 1999 by Kathy Ryan after her husband's New Zealand publisher found
it difficult to find a US distributor. Further frustrated at the lack of good
books from the Pacific Region in the United States, Kathy decided to do something
about it and set up the company in partnership with her photographer/ writer
husband Paddy Ryan.
In this instance, "small
is beautiful". With a catalog that is small enough to be manageable our aim
is to provide reviews of many of the books we offer and to give you a forum
for feedback. We also want to provide a resource for school projects on the
Pacific region and will regularly post photos for downloading for this and other
Because we aim to provide good quality images, download times may take a while. But we think that you'll think it is worth it.
