Red Horseshoe Books

Book Publishing and Design

The Woman, and the Horse, behind Red Horseshoe Books

My name is Barbara Lee. For years, I worked in publication design at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, but in 1990, I started my own business, DesignSmith Visual Communications. I focused on design and printing work for Engineering, Research, and Technology companies, but as more and more authors approached me to publish their books, I recognized a real need and started Red Horseshoe Books. Nothing speaks to solid craftsmanship, durability, and honest value better than a horseshoe. That’s how we build your book – nothing virtual about this process! (Oh, the color? I have a wonderful red Bay Mare named Kitty!) I look forward to publishing your book and watching it sell. Please get in touch by filling out the contact form. Let’s roll!
