A Very Private Grave in Very Large Print

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ November 1, 2018

I was absolutely thrilled when Torch Trust in the UK contacted me a few months ago to say that they would like to make my Monastery Murders series available in large print for the visually impaired. They produce materials at the request of their blind patrons, so I felt doubly honored that someone had especially requested my books.

I had assumed that the books would resemble the large print books Thorndike Press did of my Cambridge Chronicles many years ago. I was surprised when A Very Private Grave, the first in the series, arrived a few days ago. The book is published in 5 volumes, each bound in pale green card stock, 8 X 12-inch pages, bold face, 25 point type. This is truly the brave new world of large print books. It makes the former large print look very small, indeed.

I can only imagine what a boon having books available in this format must be to book lovers who struggle with their eyesight. Books can be ordered in font sizes from 17 point clear up to 30 point. Torch Trust also produces books in braille and audio books. Their materials are available to borrow or to buy.

Please tell your vision impaired friends about this wonderful resource.
