The History of South Church in Andover Massachusetts  

THE HISTORY OF SOUTH CHURCH IN ANDOVER MASSACHUSETTS

By Julie Pike
Publisher: The Cheshire Press
About …
In 1859, The Rev. George Moor, pastor, published the last South Church history book. He saw the need to organize the records of South Church, which were scattered in various homes and areas of the church. In 2011, Julie Pike happily reports that church record-keeping is much better organized. And as South Church in Andover, Massachusetts, United Church of Christ, prepares to celebrate its 300th anniversary, she has taken on the enormous task of updating the church history and publishing this book. Perhaps only a researcher and genealogist of Julie Pike’s
caliber could have accomplished this task.

Here’s how The Cheshire Press helped …
We designed the book’s four-color cover, using Ms. Pike’s own dramatic photographs. We designed the text to be highly readable and worked to “tame” detailed time lines and membership lists. Finally, we enhanced photographs of the church’s pastors, although this included illustrated portraits since the earliest ministers served before the age of photography.

The Gilded Age of Rangeley Maine

THE GILDED AGE OF RANGELEY MAINE

By Gary Priest
Publisher: Gary Priest
About …
Back when Rangeley Lake was still known as Oquossoc Lake, the glorious camps of The Gilded Age began to rise on the shores of mid-Maine. The living presence—as well as the shots—of these magnificent camps can still be seen in Rangeley. In this book Gary Priest leads a guided tour of the camps as they were then and are now.

Here’s how The Cheshire Press helped …
The 394-page published volume (size 8-1/2 by 11”) was a high stack of manuscript and a loose collection of (number?) of photographs when the author contacted us for publishing help. The cover and text presented design challenges, due to the many photos that helped tell the story, but possibly the greatest challenge involved preparing the grayscale photos; many demanded retouching and enhancement. The Cheshire Press was able to guide and advise published Gary Priest on how to secure ISBN and Library of Congress numbers, how to place his book on Amazon, and how to market the published product. THE GILDED AGE OF RANGELEY MAINE is available on Amazon and on Priest’s website

A History of Rangeley Hotels and Camps  

A HISTORY OF RANGELEY HOTELS AND CAMPS

By Gary Priest
Publisher: Gary Priest
2009
About …
While volunteering at the Rangeley Lakes Region Historical Society Priest became aware of the need for a complete history of all the hotels and camps that were the destination of fishermen and tourists from many different states.

Having grown up in Rangeley Priest knew most of the resorts and camps. However, what began as a compilation of several of the more well known places led to in-depth research of all the hotels and camps in the region including private clubs and children's camps.

Here’s how The Cheshire Press helped …
This book, previously published, needed a facelift and an update, so we designed a new look that graphically connected it with its big sister THE GILDED AGE OF RANGELEY MAINE.
