Once upon a time, large print books were scarce. And the ones that were available had drab covers with extra large fonts. For people who had vision problems, or just wanted something a little easier to read as they aged, large print books were an okay option–not great, but okay.
Times have changed! Not only are we able to get many of the latest best-sellers and new releases in large print format, but the covers are exciting and often exactly the same as the regular print versions.
