Fox Meadow Books is a custom book design house based in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
Fox Meadow has gained a reputation for creating visually pleasing, intellectually rewarding books. They print only on acid-free paper, and as much as possible specify stock that is recycled and produced in an environmentally friendly manner.
