My mother, inspired during an outing with a visually impaired friend, came up with the idea for this series of books. My parents, Kathy and Paul Reinhold, have often tackled difficult humanitarian and conservation projects. Designing and publishing a series of books was something entirely new for them. That is where my husband, Bill, and I stepped into the picture. As graphic designers, we were the next link in the chain connecting inspiration and creation. The result is this series of books for the visually impaired.
Initially we sought a publisher to help us create the books. Unfortunately, our research told us that the bindery must be very specialized to work correctly and help people to physically use the books.This was very costly. Unwilling to compromise in any way, we resolved to published the books ourselves thereby allowing us complete control of the design, the content and the highly-unique physical design of the books.
The Harvard Ranch has been our family getaway for 30 years. The rustic log home and outbuildings are nestled at the base of Mount Harvard in the Arkansas River Valley of central Colorado. My sisters and I spent our summers exploring along Frenchmen’s Creek, and traipsing through the hills looking for wild berries and arrowheads. Today, the homestead is still just as wonderful as it was then, with its rushing creek, abundant wildlife, many dogs and fond memories. It has also been a great place to work on books.
We are currently working on more books, including gender specific titles, as well as Old Testament, and non-secular titles.
