Established in 2007

Our story began with the creation of our first Legacy Book. The work was exhilarating, and we poured ourselves into it.

The outcome provided a surviving mother with a cherished keepsake of her daughter, crafted with hundreds of photos and stories. Legacy Books was born.

Project Management

With decades of combined experience in book creation, our project managers have established processes and workflows that ensure breathtaking results—on time and within budget. By jointly setting clear expectations and communicating with unparalleled clarity, we consistently provide our customers with an exceptional experience and a stunning finished product.

Interviewing

For our team of storytellers, interviewing is the rewarding art of uncovering the nuances and narratives that drive to the heart of a legacy. Asking the right questions is key; making participants feel comfortable is essential. Our personal touch results in stories that bring legacies to life.

Research

Effective research unlocks rich, seemingly lost historical information. Photographs, stories, awards, memories—and the rich tapestry of values, character, and personality they represent—are mined to inspire the readers of every Legacy book.

Storytelling & editing

From photography and typography to layout and illustration, our design team boasts seasoned artists whose painstaking pride in their work makes every Legacy book as pleasing to see as it is to read. And their technical expertise ensures that every project is produced with precise attention to detail, whether digital or in print.

Design & Layout

An indispensable trademark of every Legacy book is the emotion felt through the richness of its cover, the grain of its paper and the subtle crack of its spine—every moment adding to the anticipation of the story that awaits.  Selecting the right materials to match each project ensures a tactile experience that consumes the reader. The publication of your Legacy book will bear the indelible mark of the pride we pour into it.

Printing & Binding

Whether crafting a series of short stories or building a broad narrative, our writers and editors weave the priceless recollections gathered through research and interviews into a timeless finished product. Every book is a unique opportunity to preserve a legacy, so we match each project to the Legacy writer whose tone is best suited to provide just the right voice.

The 5 Step Process

We’ll get a thorough understanding of your project—goals, timelines, and audience—so we can better advise you throughout the process.

At the kickoff meeting, we dig into the specifics of your project and gather names, contact information, and other details to get things moving forward.

We know that not every picture or story will make it into the final book—but don’t worry. Our experts capture and protect all documents for archive and publication.

Our designers, writers, and editors will make sure your book showcases your story with oversight and approval every step of the way to ensure success.

We’ll help you select the right materials to match your vision and help you publish and share your Legacy Book.

I had been researching my family for several decades and wanted to publish it to preserve it for my posterity. In Legacy Books, I found a highly professional, full-service publisher. I went to the best! I sent the book to genealogical societies where my ancestors lived. Many expressed their admiration for the high quality of the book, and one called it the ‘Gold Standard’ of how to publish a family history. Thanks so much.

You have done a wonderful job with a book that will last for generations, andWriting a book about our ancestors was enjoyable and exciting for me. However, when the suggestion came that the stories be printed and bound, I was clueless. I had no idea how to proceed and the task seemed daunting.

Fortunately, my niece put us in touch with Legacy Books.  We met with a representative who explained the process and timeline. After that I was greatly assisted as I completed the final edits for the book.  In fact one of the editors at Legacy even came to my home to guide me through the technological aspects of the edits that I did not understand. Associates at Legacy Books were ALWAYS available and quickly answered my questions, even pleasantly!

I have the highest regard for Legacy Books. The final book on our ancestors matches their noble lives in the quality of presentation!  We are very pleased and highly recommend Legacy Books.   I’m very grateful for the professionalism you have shown putting it together. Our family is so impressed with the detail, quality, and content along with the general look, touch, and feel of the book. It truly is a legacy of our family.

Our books are built to last your lifetime and several more, and that’s why we can call them legacy books. The books are printed in forms and then smythe sewn–just like the coffee-table-quality books you already own

No, there is no minimum quantity. We’ve printed as few as just several copies. Legacy Books has fulfilled print runs of 1 book to over 700.

Many of our clients have asked us the same question. With a little information from you, we can research your ancestors and find the documents, records, and stories to create your family legacy book.

Yes, please reach out–we often help people fulfill their printing and binding needs.

Yes, of course. We’re happy to jump in and assist wherever you’re at in the process. To cover all your bases, though, we’ll offer to proofread the stories you’ve already produced.
