Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Is there anything more exciting than discovering a promising small press of exacting standards and prolific output? (That’s a rhetorical question.) Napa Press has been publishing art books and graphic novels and hosting flipbook competitions since 1997, and it’s still going strong. Managed by artist Jenni Rope and a gallery board, the press is rooted in a gallery and shop in the heart of Helsinki and supplements its bound output with limited posters and prints by Napa artists.
The creativity stemming from Napa is astounding and never-ending. There are egg-painting parties, illustration exhibitions, animation DVDs, documentary photo books and so much more. Check out the web shop here, or hey! Why not take a stroll past the gallery in Google maps to round out your conception of it?
