"What comes across loud and clear ...
is the unmistakable ring of authenticity."
We hope that observation, from a review of our anthology Shore Stories, also rings true for our endeavors as a trade publisher. It is what we strive for.
Since 1984, Down The Shore Publishing has offered coastal residents and visitors an increasing variety of quality regional titles. We began with a single calendar in 1985 the first Down The Shore Calendar. Since that time, we have become a dedicated publisher of books - including regional history, literature, pictorial works and gift books - as well as calendars, notecards, and videos.
We have been fortunate to attract talented writers, editors, artists and photographers, and our titles have become touchstones and valuable references about the Shore. In our publishing, integrity and quality in content combine with strikingly beautiful design.
We were the first and remain the premier publisher of quality books about the New Jersey Shore, our primary market. This coastline is intimately connected to the emotions and memories of the New York and Philadelphia regions - and our titles make that connection, whether at the shore or at home in the suburbs or city.
As another reviewer wrote recently:
"Down The Shore Publishing is doing a remarkable job not only of finding and bringing to light tales and chronicles of the Jersey Shore, but also of encouraging and promoting new works, fictional, documentary and children’s. You won’t find John Grisham or Belva Plain on its book list. But for beach reading you can look up from and see the setting right there, it’s rapidly becoming the house of record."
Our attachment to and love for the Shore is readily apparent in all of our books, calendars, cards and videos. We not only publish here, we live here - we have sand in our shoes and salt in our veins.
And although our publishing emphasis is this coast, we also publish books with universal coastal themes, as well as books about New Jersey in general. We hope you enjoy our efforts and thank you for joining us wherever you may be Down The Shore!
