Reidhead & Company helps folks craft stories through words and images, and then we bring those stories to life in beautifully published and designed books. We create books of all shapes and sizes, scholarly papers and journals, legacy publications for individuals and organizations, personal histories, family histories, memoirs, art books, children’s books, and more. Simply, we craft stories.
Joe Reidhead founded Reidhead & Company in 2009 with the publication of a monk’s box of nearly forgotten letters. Since then, he has grown the company into a full-service book publisher and book design studio. Joe possesses a sharp eye for the details of the creative and publishing processes, shepherding clients through this terrain and delivering their creative vision in printed form (and sometimes digital).
We write books, and we edit books.
Books, articles, press releases, and websites, from the corporate environment to the humble family legacy, share in common the written word. Writing is a craft, and more than ever, audiences are looking for authentic and meaningful messaging from their favorite authors and brands. We merge technical editing with strong, narrative storytelling. Simply, we help you tell stories—real and authentic stories.
We design books, iteratively.
Exceptional book design is an invisible framework upon which knowledge and creative content sit in the most natural of ways. This type of design allows the audience to experience the content seamlessly—an immersive interaction. Not all book design studios believe in this and force the content into the design. Here, we allow the content to lead the design process. Simply, we won’t let the book design get in the way of your story.
We handle the technical details.
Not all book production processes are equal. That’s why Reidhead & Company works with each client to find the publishing, printing, and distribution options that are best for their budget and project. Simply, know when to call the local letterpress shop, when to fire up the Heidelberg, when to scale back to the HP Indigo digital printing press, or when to drop it on the internet.
Our clients have many interests, and so do we.
As a book publisher and book design studio, we have the honor of working with unique individuals from around the globe. Monks, mountaineers, muleteers, the disability community, small businesses, archaeologists, artists, historians, and non-profits. They all had a story to tell, and we helped them.
