Bokförlaget Stolpe

Craftsmanship, Scholarship and Quality

Welcome to Bokförlaget Stolpe. The publishing house was founded in 2018 by Marika Stolpe, who has 25 years of experience as a publishing director and publisher, including with Bonnier Publishing.

We produce specialist books of the very finest quality, which means we place a great emphasis on design, reproduction, printing and binding as well as high scholarly content. We cover a wide range of publications, and the subjects are often timeless.

The publishing house collaborates in full with the Swedish foundation Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation for Public Benefit. Their vision is to support individuals, ideas and projects in the humanities and social sciences.

We publish books based on the foundation’s research projects, seminars and grants awarded to talented writers and scholars and we ensure that the books are available in Sweden and around the world.

Here on our website you can read about the books we have published to date but also about the books we have in progress. And sometimes – films, exhibitions or even virtual reality productions will be made from the material from some of these books.

Follow us by signing up to our newsletter or by liking our Facebook page!
