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.
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!

The paste downs in the interior of the box are copies of her Mother’s handwritten recipes.
The Structure is a single-signature sewn flat-back binding. We worked with the printers at Edison Press in Sanford, Maine to offer the Museum a clean and unique presentation. The books are covered in Buckram Stone with an accent triangle of Arrestox Teal Green Linen. We were honored to build the housing for these catalogs of works by this celebrated Maine Artist.

Photographer Peter Ralston of the Ralston Gallery in Rockport, Maine came to Mullenberg Designs with a very special project. He needed a structure to house a limited edition portfolio of his Photographs paired with the Poetry of his long time friend and collaborator, Writer Philip Conkling. The project aptly named, Pairings deserved a Presentation Structure that would convey the beauty of the work enclosed.
