About Artisan Books & Bindery

Artisan Books & Bindery storefront Artisan Books & Bindery maintains an open shop on the small island of Islesboro, 3 miles off the Maine coast near Camden. In addition to general stock, we specialize in books on American History, Art, Architecture, Interior Design, Fine Press, and Signed First Editions.

Given the fact that we are on a small island only accessible by ferry, it is best to call ahead to verify the best time to visit. For ferry schedules, please see the Maine State Ferry Service's website.
