How many times have you thought about getting your family and personal history down in print, or wanted a loved one to do so?
Life History Books works with you to develop a custom-made, archive-quality book that can be passed down through the generations as a treasured heirloom.
Memoirs: As a memoir service, they interview you or whomever the client is and then text from the transcribed interviews is laid into an elegant book, interspersed with personal photographs and other mementos. The result is a stunning, professionally-finished family treasure. They can also interview an additional loved one to fill in gaps or merely to add a second perspective. Books can be focused on specific experiences, such as immigrating to a new country or becoming grandparents. Baby books – tales from a baby’s first years – are also popular.
Tribute Books: As a tribute book service, the company interviews 1-12 people who speak about a person being honored. Photos and other memorabilia are laid into a book along with the text. Tribute books make an excellent surprise gift or remembrance for a loved one who has passed.
Book designs are fully personalized, from the cover’s appearance to font size. Every detail is in the client’s control, including the book length, and a proof is approved before the book goes to print. The process itself is enjoyable and meaningful, and it typically takes about one month.
Life History Books is the first company with highly skilled and experienced personal historians spread throughout the world. They offer a wide variety of packages to meet your needs and budget. Audio CDs of the interviews are available, as well as extra book copies. Books may be updated over time.
