Welcome to the online home of Fine Line Press, New Zealand.
Here you can learn about FLP’s recent books: A Walk in Japan
(2015) and Whisper of the Land (2014). For your delight and edification earlier books were Downunder Japan (March 2012), Japan on Foot (Dec. 2011) and Ribbons of Fate (Dec. 2010). Our first books were Glimpses of Old Tokyo and Forty Stories of Japan. There is also Exercises for Glimpses of Old Tokyo for students of English. Further down the line will be the memoir of a celebrity interviewer in Tokyo and a detective novel, Imperfect Strangers, by Lea O'Harra.
The wish and intention of FineLine Press is to produce books of quality mostly by new writers. To begin with the focus is on Japan, where the writer of Glimpses of Old Tokyo lives. FineLine Press is interested in writers who feel that they can write, especially about their own real experiences, in an alluring, lyrical and delightful way.
FineLine Press originated out of our good fortune to work on the memories of a Japanese writer, Masuho Fujita. The production of Glimpses of Old Tokyo took several years working with the writer, the artist, an independent editor and others. It seemed logical and desirable after so much work to create a personal outlet for Masuho's book.
