Artist Kathleen Bender visited our studio for a consultation on a special project. She needed a unique house for a handmade leaf-shaped book, a collaborative project made with a group of Maine Book Artists. Scott came up with this structure, a drawer in a slipcase… a perfect fit!
Long-time friend and Maine-based Artist Shoshannah White came to us for a presentation solution for her encaustic works. Scott came up with this altered 2-Piece Clamshell Box to add a professional finishing touch to her fine art presentation.
Maine-based Artist Tanja Hollander came to Mullenberg Designs to build a run of custom-branded Slipcases for her recently released book, Are You Really My Friend?. The book accompanies her current exhibition at MASS MoCA of the same title. The exhibition will be on view through February 11, 2018.
Custom-built Slipcases for Artist’s Books
Excerpt from MASS MoCA about, Are You Really My Friend?… “In 2011, Maine-based photographer Tanja Alexia Hollander set out to differentiate the actual from the virtual by photographing all 626 of her Facebook friends. Since then, she has traveled across the globe, setting up in-person meetings in her friends’ homes to discover the ways in which friendship is defined, and how permission is granted into one’s private — yet also very public — online life. Through this project, the artist has been able to take the virtual out of friendship.”
Custom-designed Artist Catalogs built by Mullenberg Designs for the Ogunquit Museum of American Art. Each limited edition catalog was built to accompany the exhibition of a celebrated Maine Artist.
Each book was hand-sewn and bound by the bookbinders at Mullenberg Designs. We worked closely with Museum staff to select cover materials to best represent the work of each Artist. The catalogs were printed locally at Edison Press.
Fine Art Photographer Christopher Friese contacted Mullenberg Designs to build a house for his series of photographs documenting Route 66: Rear View 66. Our 2-Piece Clamshell structure was the perfect fit for these Fine Art Prints.

Maine artist Sissy Buck came to us with a Delicious project. We built her a Memory Box also called a 2-Piece Clamshell Presentation Box for her mother’s recipes. It warms our hearts to work on meaningful personal projects such as this one!
Memory Box / 2-Piece Clamshell Presentation Box
The paste downs in the interior of the box are copies of her Mother’s handwritten recipes.
Photographic Artist Nathan Mandurrago selected a Clamshell style Presentation Box. This structure is perfect for fine art prints. Nathan selected Arrestox White for his cover material. This coated linen material lends a crisp clean finish to Nathan’s portfolio communicating his modern /nature-inspired style.
