About Legacy Books

the History of us

Seventeen Years, Over 100 Projects, Hundreds of interviews, untold hours in research and storytelling

Legacy Books is the leading provider of custom-designed, custom-crafted books for individuals, families, and organizations who wish to preserve their legacies.

Established in 2007, our story began with the creation of our first Legacy Book: a project to capture the life and story of Donna Rae. 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.

In that moment we began our mission to capture and protect life’s journey for those who want their stories to be told—in a clear, beautiful, detailed, and unforgettable narrative. 

“Concierge level service with a design all your own. we don’t do carbon-copy work for our clients.”
