Stories are powerful
The role and availability of self-publishing has changed dramatically over the past few years. It is now possible to produce short-run publications at an affordable price, either as one of projects or as part of an integrated marketing approach. We can offer design, warehousing, distribution and fulfilment packages including arranging of all photography, styling and locations.
Seven Nights on the Alta
We designed, published and distributed this book, for author Jan Ekman. The Alta, a legendary salmon fishing river in Norway, had for years been under threat of a hydro-electric dam. This book recalls the memories of Ekman, who spent much of his spare time on the river, and the fights to preserve the river for spawning salmon. 100% of profits go to the North Atlantic Salmon Fund to help protect fish for future generations.
