The Porcupine’s Quill is an artisanal publisher that values the art and craft of the book, both in content and in form. Our mandate is to preserve the culture of the printed word by using our expertise in the art of 20th-century offset printing technology to create quality books that look and feel like 19th-century letterpress products. We specialize in nadian art and design, book history, memoirs and selectively acquired collections of poetry and fiction from edgy new authors as well as pillars of the non.
