About Artisan Books & Bindery

Founded by Craig & Melissa Olson in 2003, Artisan Books & Bindery is an online and "by appointment only" rare book business on the small island of Islesboro, 3 miles off the Maine coast near Camden. We specialize in books on Architecture, Design, Photography, and National Parks.

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

For general inquiries, please email us at info@artisanbooksandbindery.com
