Named for its geographic location on North Carolina's beautiful barrier islands, Outer Banks Press is committed to preserving the highest industry standards while spreading a message of respect and mindfulness for each other and for our natural surroundings. As an independent publisher, we specialize in producing custom books of literary, artistic and photographic merit that are distinctive in both content and design. We are pleased to offer you a selection of our most recent work.
Publisher: Outer Banks Press
9" high x 10" wide; 36 pages + illustrated end leaves + hardcover; full-color illustrations throughout.
In September 2018, Hurricane Florence made landfall just south of Wrightsville Beach near Wilmington, North Carolina, causing flooding more than 80 miles along the coast. Highways and roads were under water, and almost a million homes lost power.
Outer Banks Press was launched in the 1990s to publish regional lifestyle and vacation-oriented magazines. Soon, the company grew to include rental brochures, collateral materials, high-end coffee table books and books for academia.
As a gift to the community, we sponsored a public art installation of 100 life-size artfully decorated fiberglass horses -- the Winged Horse Extravaganza -- to commemorate the Centennial of Flight in 2003. Along with this art project, we published three editions of "Outer Banks Wild, A Winged Horse Pictorial," which picture these fabulous works of art, some of which still grace the Outer Banks.
Our current focus is on private book clients, who turn to us to assist them in creating beautiful books to showcase their work. Our publishing services include ghost writing, editing, illustrating, photography, project management, layout and design. We work with our authors hand-in-hand through the entire process, from discussing the spark of an idea all the way through delivering the final products. For me, the largest reward has been making life-long friends while having a lot of fun in the process.
