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 great emphasis on design, reproduction, printing and binding as well as high scholarly content.

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. We issue a wide range of publications on timeless topics.

You can learn more about both published and upcoming titles here on our website. Several of our books are available as e-books and audiobooks. Our website also features a video gallery about Hilma af Klint.
