I know this is for people with problems with their eyesight, but it seems to me that it includes the guy on the front.
Seems to me that he ain't even noticed the rather large sidearm being pointed at him.... 'grin'

John, The joking aside, it seems to me large-print books have long broken out of their "for people with problems with their eyesight" limitation.

I can remember when my local library used to rubber stamp LP books with the message "For Sight Disability Borrowers Only". They haven't done that for years now, and people looking for good, easy reads in the western, mystery and romance genres tell me the books they want to read are faster to find on the library's LP shelves.

Today's Linford series are nothing like the bulky hardcover books Ulverscroft put out when pioneering large-print publishing. They are attractive, softcover books with good cover art (see above), and are printed on light but strong acid-free paper.

Combine all that with the clear, large type and it's no wonder these reprints are more popular than the original, standard editions.

I actually had a few freebies in the post this afternoon, and they really are wonderful editions. Smaller than I remember the large print books I've seen in the past and look lovely on the shelves.
