Valise creates and publishes expressive books on art, design, and lifestyle that are a pleasure to read, behold, and give.
A book is a canvas. We work with creative eyes and minds — artists, makers, and writers — to share their visions and tell their stories.
Beauty is essential. Our passion for the physical book has led us to an unwavering commitment to quality. With a focused approach to typography, sequence, color, paper, and printing, we seek nothing short of design excellence.
Small is just fine. The personal attention that our staff provides distinguishes us throughout every step of the creative process. Our finished products are high-quality books, often produced in small quantities, for public and private distribution.
What we’re reading. Valise also offers a fine selection of books produced by other publishers. Our editors have carefully curated this list to reflect our interests and values as bookmakers. Visit our online and Vermont bookstores to see them all.
