Boulder Books is an independent Atlantic Canadian book publishing company dedicated to high quality works that explore underrepresented and evolving aspects of Canadian culture. Since opening for business in 2002 Boulder has become a leading publisher of culturally significant books in both literary and non-literary genres. Boulder Books and knitters Shirley A. Scott and Christine LeGrow won the 2021 Atlantic Canada Craft Award Excellence in Product Design for a book series about traditional Newfoundland knitting. The Saltwater series – Saltwater Mittens, Saltwater Classics and Saltwater Gifts – uses knitting to help the reader discover more about our unique culture through innovative photography, anecdotes, and dialogue, along with historical and geographic snippets. In 24 years of presenting these awards, this is the first time a publisher received this distinction.
