Alaska-based Vered Publishing & Design House looks for a select number of good writers. VPD House has editors and designers trained in all of the latest technology to get your book out of the closet and into the hands of readers. We want to give talented, hard-working writers an opportunity to get published and promoted. We focus on smaller print runs (soft or hard cover), e-books, editing, and design consulting services. All our books are printed in the United States on recycled paper using non-toxic inks. VPD House produces beautiful, high quality books.

Vered R. Mares

Publisher/Sr. Editor

Vered Mares was born into a household of poets, writers, artists and musicians. As a child, Vered explored the high deserts of northern New Mexico at Ghost Ranch near Georgia O’Keeffe’s home, while her father taught poetry and writing workshops. She has designed over 65 books and illustrated many others. Vered’s body of work includes calendars, business packages, logos, signs, screen, litho and intaglio prints.  She has also designed and built large-scale commercial art projects. Vered earned a BFA from Boise State University in Visual Arts, focusing on ceramics, printing and sculpture.  While at the university, she studied under Professor George Roberts and M. Clare Trerise, helping to develop and test non-toxic printing methods including water based inks, and new etching compounds. She has designed books for award winning authors Angel Gonzales of Spain, E.A. “Tony” Mares of New Mexico, and nationally syndicated cartoonist, Chad Carpenter of Alaska. Vered studied poetry with writer and poet Patricia Clark Smith at the University of New Mexico in the early 90s. She was one of the founding members and incorporators of AGIA Alaska (the professional association for design) in 2010, and subscribes to the ethics and standards set forth by AIGA Alaska. She has a core belief in quality, hard work and creativity.
