We stock a large selection of titles from Gaspereau Press, a literary publisher and printshop located in neighbouring Kentville, Nova Scotia. Employing a wide range of modern and antiquated production techniques and technologies, Gaspereau Press creates books that marry function and form. From limited-edition letterpress projects to Smyth-sewn trade paperbacks with handprinted jackets, every project carries some trace of the human mind, eye and hand. This hands-on approach carries through every aspect of a book’s creation, resulting in a process which is as culturally enriching as the books it fosters.
