ABOUT THE BOOK & FILM

hardcover coffee-table book—a community-driven, collective publication featuring notable local individuals,

The book showcases the latest technology embedding video segments which will ultimately be

and the community.

EXAMPLE ORGANIZATION BIO: The San Dieguito Heritage Museum was founded in 1988 to

collect, preserve and interpret the history of the San Dieguito River area, including the cities

OUR CONCEPT

What if there was a fundraising program that wouldn’t cost you anything and you didn’t have to

devote a lot of hard work, time and effort in implementing it, and with no staff-time requirement

from your organization at all? Does this sound too good? With HPN Books and LedgeMedia, this

is actually true.

HPN Books presents a fundraising concept for both promotion of your message in a beautiful

unforgettable format as well as a unique alternative method of income generation that doesn’t

compete with your traditional methods but actually supports them.

The concept can be applied with any of our HPN Books’ Historic/Community Heritage, Cityscape,

or Commemorative book-series templates as well as customizing a book to your own organization

or association needs.

The following organizations have utilized our unique book program:

• Historical Preservation Societies

• City and County Governments

• Chambers of Commerce

• Trade Associations

• Convention & Visitor Bureaus

• Nonprofit Organizations

• Colleges & Universities

• Hospitals

• Museums

• Public Libraries, and more!

Beyond Fundraising, our stunning coffee-table books are an ideal medium for a City or State

to promote Tourism and Economic Development, and institutions such as Museums, Charitable

Organizations, and Universities to showcase & enhance both their mission and their messages.

SHARING THE HERITAGE

The LedgeMedia team will conduct a dignified and professional fundraising campaign within

your community or association to recruit additional content for the book in the form of sponsored

stories which our professional staff writers will interview, write and edit their contributions to

the book.

We strive to find sponsors that will actually support your overall editorial and make for a more

interesting and thicker, heavier book.

“You earn royalties during the book building process!”

HPN Books’ 40 year successful track-record in helping organizations and communities

raise funding through the publication of coffee-table books show that an organization

or town of virtually any size can financially benefit from such a publication.

HPN Books was created with the mission of helping to preserve in print some of the nation’s

invaluable local historical narratives and utilizing them to raise funds for the organization

preserving them.

What Can A QR-Code

Do For Me?

QR codes are everywhere, being used

to share information in a manner that

is quickly accessible to anyone with

a smartphone.

We are using QR-Codes in this book

exclusively with video segments, to tell

a story, page by page, further elaborating

on the editorial of the book.

DOCUMMENTARY FILM

The QR-Code video segment clips will

ultimately be professionally edited

included in a documentary film to

accompanying this book, which will be

premiered at the book release party.

Your short video segment could be

ABOUT THE PUBLISHER

HPNbooks was conceived around the idea of an ultra-high-quality hardcover chronicle of a city or organization’s

past. These exceptional books were also designed to raise funds for a partnering organization. As of 2020,

HPNbooks has published more than 200 titles, while raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for its many

partnering groups.

Now a woman-owned company, Ledge Media has further developed their network and incorporated many

new modern technologies including embedding video into printed materials. Ledge Media is a leading-edge

multimedia company, now headquartered in Jackson, Wyoming, with its parent company, FRE-Enterprises. Its

origins can be traced back to 1973, where HPNbooks, based in San Antonio, Texas, was helping businesses

and historical societies tell their stories in the most compelling ways possible.

such a beautifully produced book, as you promised it would be.”

“Being in the financial services industry, it is often difficult to provide a tangible gift that is

the history books filled this void.”
