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.”

Mullenberg / Studio Culture / Maine

Welcome to Mullenberg Designs, on any given week day you could pop into the studio and hear this…

Nestled in a small studio by the Saco river, Mullenberg Designs was one of the early migrators to take advantage of the spacious and irrevocably cool Mill spaces available in the North Dam mill, a refurbished textile mill. As we work hard to build beautiful custom portfolios for our customers we are lucky to be surrounded by inspiring people with passion for what they do. Meet some of our awesome neighbors…

Rare book dealer Don Lindgren is a wealth of knowledge on books, food, art and punk rock. As lovers of all of the above we are glad that Don is here!

The Ralston Gallery / Maine / Art & Poetry

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.
