About Us

↑ Top of Page

HPN Books is an operating-division of Ledge Media, a well-established specialty publishing house with locations in Southern California, San Antonio, Texas, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The Historical Publishing Network, or HPN Books, was founded in 1973 as Lammert Publications Inc. originally publishing community and business newspapers, local magazines and directories for organizations such as Chambers of Commerce.

For over 40 years, HPN Books has carved out a leading position for turnkey design, production, and marketing of limited edition photography-rich coffee table books that focus on promoting the unique heritage and history of hundreds of communities, cities and regions across the United States, publishing thousands of distinct book titles for the Historical Publishing Network’s many sponsors and clients.

These glossy hard-cover coffee table books are typically sponsored by city mayors, county officials, trade associations, chambers of commerce, nonprofit organizations, libraries, educational and healthcare institutions, with the participation of local businesses and institutions which purchase profile pages in these books to prominently feature and/or advertise their organizations.

HPN Custom Media & Publishing or CMP, a sister-division of HPN Books, offers custom media & publishing solutions to nonprofit organizations, trade associations, foundations, companies, churches, colleges, universities and healthcare institutions to commemorate and celebrate key historical or transformational milestones, promote their heritage and legacy, or to enhance their brand and reputational standing in their markets and communities.

Today, a proudly woman-owned company led by Ledge Media’s founder and CEO, the new President of HPN Books, Daphne Fletcher, a veteran publisher and editor of thousands of books.

Our Process

↑ Top of Page

Upon engagement, we assign a multidisciplinary project team to work closely with the client to not only define the title and look of the commissioned book, but above all to collaboratively develop the book’s “soul and theme”, which come alive through our proprietary interactive research and interview process.

Once the goal and needs of a client, and thus the scope of the commissioned book, are more clearly defined through the interview process, our writers, editors and photographers spring into action, and typically spend days at the client’s site to compile first-hand material and illustrations for the book.

Researching and mining through the history and heritage of a corporation, foundation, association, education or government institution, or an individual client, our team is able to unearth exceptional content which it develops into powerful stories that make the client’s heritage and legacy come to life.

The client’s employees, customers, partners, benefactors and shareholders highly value a credible story which unites a corporation’s or organization’s past to its present and to its future, and thus enhances the corporation’s or organizations’ community standing, its brand reputation, or celebrates an important milestone, anniversary, reunion- or a transformational event.

The results of our work include breathtaking photo-rich coffee table books which may be complemented by a dedicated website, digital “flip-book”, and/or by related events to commemorate a historical milestone, introduce or promote a product or brand, or to present an organization’s annual report with more impressive visuals.
