Candlewick Press is a growing publishing company based out of Boston. Since I started this blog, I have been paying attention more to who publishes the books I'm reading - and maybe more importantly - who publishes that books I'm reading that I love. Many times, when I turn back to look at who published a well-loved book, it's Candlewick.
I tweeted to tell the people at Candlewick that they might find me outside taking pictures and drooling as I stare through the window. Since I'm not involved in the publishing process of books, it is so fascinating to me to see where editors work and where artwork is checked for correct colors and where books come to life. Somehow the stars were aligned and Regan, who tweets for Candlewick Press, was in the office when we got there. Regan was super nice and gave my friend and me a tour of the Candlewick offices.
Here are some of the pictures from my visit:
|Here were are at Candlewick Press in Somerville Massachusetts!|
|These big posters cover the walls when you enter the vestibule.|
|I love these girls!|
|I love seeing all the books set up like this. Great display!|
|I felt very welcome at Candlewick!|
|Gotta love the Candlewick Bear!|
|If you work in an office, it's silly to love this. I get excited to see desk like these because I don't!|
|Artwork before it goes into a book - the colors have to be checked|
|This is Regan's library of all the books that are currently in print from Candlewick!|
|Here I am with Regan in her beloved library. I was close to tears it was so cool.|
|Thanks Regan and Candlewick for letting me visit!|
I'm currently reading The Ask and the Answer: Chaos Walking: Book Two from Patrick Ness' Chaos Walking series which is great. Guess How Much I Love You, Love and Kisses, and Hug are our favorite board books from Candlewick. And I can't forget Bink and Gollie! (Did you know there's another Bink and Gollie book coming?!) Do you have a favorite book from Candlewick Press? I'd love to hear your favorites!
