Handbound Book Line

We are producing a line of handmade books, locally crafted and distributed throughout the state. These titles will showcase local literary, poetic, and artistic talent and bring together diverse communities from the publishing, art, and craft worlds in Maine and beyond.

The first titles to be produced will be from Polar Bear & Company authors, but we are hoping to collaborate with other independent presses as well, an opportunity to strengthen ties between independent presses for the benefit for the whole group. If you are an independent press, please contact us; we’d love to hear from you and work with you.

Above the Gravel Bar: The Native Canoe Routes of Maine by David S. Cook will be our first handcrafted edition.
