Ed Marquand has logged some long, inspiring hours in the book arts studio in Tieton this month. Along with our printing and binding crew, he has been designing and refining the merchandise that we will feature in our new downtown Seattle store, Paper Hammer, located in front of the Marquand Books design studio. The shop opens December 2.
The shop and studios are at the corner of Second and Union, across the street from Benaroya Hall and kitty corner to the Seattle Art Museum. Paper Hammer will sell the chap books, notebooks, novelties, coasters, posters, cards, photo albums, limited edition books, and gift items that we produce in Tieton. The store will also carry a selection of books that we make for museums, collectors, and artists across the country. Carefully selected vintage and contemporary goods will round out our products.
Our new space also includes a small gallery, which will allow us to mount modest exhibitions and demonstrations about the work we do in Seattle and Tieton. Look for more to come about events and shows in the gallery space.
Paper Hammer will host an opening party December 2 during First Thursday. Save the date!
