Our Story

Pete and Narangkar Glover are the artists, makers and thinkers behind Rowan Morrison Books.  What began as a small, artist-run space in Oakland has now grown into a small book-making and paper goods operation out of Portland, Oregon.

As a small-time publisher, we believe in creating our goods affordably, and sustainably. Since 2006 we have worked closely with artists to design and create books that are best suited to highlight the strengths and characteristics of their work. Plus, we have a lot of fun designing our paper goods line.

We aim to keep our dollars local, because we believe it helps perpetuate a healthy local economy, and reduces the overall carbon footprint. We interact with our suppliers, vendors and customers directly. Our favorite printer, 1984 Printing, located in Oakland uses recycled paper, soy based inks and vegetable based adhesives.

We love seeing what people do with our books, so get in touch and share your story!
