Announcing Boulder Books!
As Boulder looks back on strong book sales in 2018, we begin 2019 with a new name, a new look, and an impressive lineup of groundbreaking new books.
After many years of being known as Boulder Publications, the company is undergoing a name change and is now Boulder Books.
Originally started by former journalist Gavin Will, the company was named for the street, Boulder Lane, on which he lived in Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s. At the time of the company’s creation, in 2002, Gavin was uncertain whether it would be publishing books, magazines, newspapers, or a combination of media. Therefore, it was named Boulder Publications. Since then the company has become well-established as a leading Newfoundland and Labrador-based book publisher, and this fact is now reflected in its new name, Boulder Books.
With the name change, the company is introducing a new logo; it features a boulder split by lightning, prominently placed within the pages of an open book. This logo represents Boulder’s business, its heritage in Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s, and reputation for being an intrepid publisher of culturally significant books.
With these changes, Boulder is announcing an exciting lineup of new books for Spring 2019:
