About Us

Turn of the Century Editions was founded by Stephen Gray and has been publishing books on the American Arts and Crafts movement since 1979. The Parchment Press was established by Peter and Janet Copeland and has been doing the same since 1993. The two businesses were combined in 2003 and currently offer over 100 titles on Arts and Crafts topics. Many of these books have become standard reference works in the field.

Our inventory changes as we either publish new books ourselves, or offer other noteworthy titles by scholars and aficionados of the movement.  Serious collectors, scholars, antiques dealers, architects, woodworkers, interior designers, as well as museums and libraries, and anyone else having an interest in the American Arts and Crafts movement, should have these books in their library.

Please review our offerings, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.  As we operate out of our home, please don’t be surprised if we answer our phone with a simple “Hello?”, and be patient if you connect with our voicemail rather than a live body.  We will return your call as soon as we can.
