FAMILY STORY BOOK


Have you been planning to capture your parents’ story for your kids and grandkids? Or share your life experiences and lessons learned? Has it felt overwhelming, causing you to pause? If your parents — or you — can: 1) give us 4 to 8 hours for interviews, 2) collect 75 to 150 photographs, and 3) review the final draft — we’ll do the rest. Then you, too, can enjoy a book that shares the story of your family.

“REMEMBER THE TIME…?”

Your family may not think they have a “book-worthy” story, but they do have experiences worth sharing. They’ve probably already told many of them at the dinner table or while browsing through a photo album. And they probably can tell you things about their parents and grandparents that are worth recording.

Your book can range from a collection of short vignettes (e.g., stories told around the dinner table) to a memoir based on questions we have developed to draw out a broad range of family history and anecdotes.

Digitizing your memorable photographs allows your family to enjoy these images beyond the physical photo albums.

INTERVIEWS

We can interview your loved ones in half-day blocks if they are visiting from out of town. Or if they live locally and prefer shorter blocks, the interviews can be spread out. Face-to-face interviews are best, but phone and Skype can work well.

For more details, see Process.

PHOTOGRAPHS

We ask you to select photographs that illustrate the various parts of the story. We can bring our scanner on site to scan physical photos, slides, or negatives. For digital photos we ask you to provide the original files (or the highest resolution copies that you can find).

For more details, see Process.

MEMORABILIA

Meaningful memorabilia — like letters, cards, keepsakes, medals, toys, clothing — can be scanned on site. Originals or reproductions of letters or cards can be included in envelopes glued into the book. We can create a custom “slipcase” that includes a drawer to house memorabilia that won’t fit into envelopes (an example is the “Architectural Slipcase with Aluminum Panels” in our Portfolio).

TIMELINE

A timeline highlights key moments or milestones of the family story, and provides a handy summary for reference. We often include it near the beginning of the book.

CUSTOM SLIPCASE

A slipcase not only protects your book, but it can be an artful way to present it. We have created custom slipcases covered with handmade paper or faux leather with gold leaf image, a slipcase with foldout panels, even an “architectural slipcase.”

For examples, see our Portfolio.
