Custom Book Publishing Specialists
As former journalists, telling a story has always been a romantic proposition. We figured that there were people in corporations, non-profits and universities who needed help with telling theirs.
We launched in 1989 in a spare bedroom of a Victorian home in downtown Atlanta. As we grew, we moved a few more times, including a move to a tobacco warehouse on the edge of town that we purchased and renovated.
We sold that warehouse and moved again, in 2011, this time into a 125-year-old building in historic Covington, Georgia, thirty-five miles outside of Atlanta. That’s where you will find us today.
As Bookhouse grew, we branched into other types of books.
Recent publications include a biography, illustrated children’s books (one of which was featured on the Today show), two highly acclaimed medical atlases translated into four languages each, and picture books commissioned by cities across the country.
But our mainstay continues to be consistent with our roots, commemorative books, company histories, and anniversary books.
What We Stand For
We believe in the power and the permanency of books. Since the first books of the ancient Torah scrolls were painstakingly penned, the idea of thoughts bound in a volume have carried a mighty weight.
A myriad media has come and gone since then, most of them in the last thirty years, and most have become dusty memories of sundry magnetic tapes and batteries of ones and zeros. But the book remains.
Many of our publications are commemorative books. Others are company histories, and we’ve also developed children’s books, atlases, biographies, and picture books. Whatever the project scope, clients take enormous pride of ownership when their book is delivered.
We’ve been invited to huge parties—five hundred, a thousand people—the sole purpose of which was to debut their book. Whether you are an international manufacturer or small family business, your story is important. And if it’s important to you, then you can be sure it is to us, as well.
