About Bess Press
Family run and in publishing since 1979 Bess Press with over 300+ books. Publishers of "Pidgin to da Max", "Hawaii's Spam Cookbook" just released books on Father Damien, Tattooing in the Marshall Islands, and American Samoan History textbook. We are "the" local and regional publisher of not only Kaimuki and Hawaii but the Pacific.

The Bess Press is an independent book publishing company located in Honolulu, Hawai'i. Started in 1979 with the reprint of two Hawaiian history textbooks, our list of titles has grown significantly over the years. Today, we offer readers and educators at all levels a selection of over two hundred trade and educational publications about Hawai'i and the Pacific.

Our publications reflect an island perspective and sensitivity. Many of our authors are experts who reside in Hawai'i and other areas of the Pacific region. I think you will find our publications informative, educational, and entertaining.

We publish trade titles about Pacific-related topics in the following categories: children's literature, cookbooks, humor, travel, sports, languages, reference books, and guidebooks.

We also offer curriculum titles widely used in schools and libraries throughout the Pacific and mainland United States on Hawaiian and Pacific island histories, languages, language arts, reading, literatures, culture and science, and reference works.

We are particularly interested in learning about your interest in Hawai'i, the Pacific, and our books.

Please let us know how we can best serve you.
