Here's a few that I know of that feature touring bikes prominently in their lit.

Jeff Lyon, Steve Bilenky, Rivendell, Peter White, Marinoni.

Pick one close to home so you can get fit in person.

Bruce Gordon, Co-Motion, Waterford, Rivendell, Heron, and a number of small framebuilders. Before you choose a bike, make sure that you have a good idea how you will use it. Every frame is a compromise of some sort. A frame built for heavy, loaded touring will not ride as nice unloaded as, say, a light touring frame. A light tourer or sports tourer will be a wonderful everyday bike, commuter, etc. but may not be as stable with a heavy load. Discuss your requirements ahead of time so you won't be disappointed with the end result.
