- Gaspereau Press
At the core of our philosophy is a commitment to making books that reinstates the importance of the book as a physical object, reuniting publishing and the book arts. Many of our covers are letterpress-printed, feature original artwork by artists like Wesley Bates and George Walker, and are printed on fine paper, in some cases even handmade. Most of our books are smyth-sewn & bound into card covers and are then enfolded in letterpress-printed jackets. Our house paper is Rolland’s Zephyr Antique Laid, a creamy, sensual book paper. Overall, the result is strong, flexible, attractive books that are comfortable, attractive and durable. And in addition to our trade titles, each year or so Gaspereau Press releases a letterpress project or two (from full-length books to broadsides) and three or four chapbooks in our Devil’s Whim series.

- Town of Wolfville
The Town of Wolfville welcomes you to Nova Scotia's dramatic and beautiful Fundy Shore. Originally known as Mud Creek, the Town of Wolfville got its name in 1830 when two granddaughters of Judge Elisha DeWolfe convinced their postmaster uncle that a more suitable name was needed. The villagers chose the name Wolfville for their town. Today beautiful elm trees, manicured lawns, grand century old homes and a collection of speciality shops and services guide visitors down Wolfville's Main Street.
