STORY - Ars Omnia Tuetur
Since 1985, Thornwillow Press has been a printer and publisher of handmade limited edition books. In an age of disposable communication, our books are created to last. Thornwillow has published the work of John Updike, Walter Cronkite, Edmund Morris and Barack Obama among many others and our books are in the permanent collections of the White House, the Vatican, the Metropolitan Museum and hundreds more. Thornwillow strives to enhance the relationship between the reader and author and to celebrate the written word.
Rooted in the artisinal crafts of fine printing and leatherwork inherent in the books that we create, Thornwillow also makes a range of personalized goods, stationery and gifts that exemplify our commitment to craftsmanship, design and quality. Objects made by human beings who are dedicated to their craft and are designed to last become part of ones identity and have soul.
A not for profit 501 (c) 3 organization, The Thornwillow Institute is committed to promoting craft, culture and community and perpetuating the art of craftsmanship and craftsmanship in art in all its forms. We believe that how we communicate and preserve ideas and inspirations in the digital age matters.
