Of course, we want to start here with exactly the work of which the publisher is proudest. It is a Bach biography for children, which was created entirely by members of this family. Of course this fact is not enough. Unless all three... the author, the painter of the illustrations and myself as a publisher are doing what we brought to this biography, also professionally and out of passion.

After all, it was a long way, about a whole year, until the idea of a Bach biography for children arrived as the first edition at the publishing house in Flein with the forwarding agency. And actually it was about two to three years, because the idea that a biography especially for children would fantastically complement the spectrum of Bach reading was something my husband, the author of "Bach on Bach", had long before that. He corresponded with publishers and with authors, that is, real writers, but ... but somehow everyone he approached had something more important in mind. And so it was that the illustrator, Petra-Ines Kaune, my husband's sister, and I convinced him: "You can do this. You can write a biography for children yourself". A few weeks later the first rough draft of the work was ready. At the same time the cute watercolors of Petra-Ines Kaune were created and for many months I took care of "the rest". And these were corrections, mainly the layout, commissioning more paintings, quickly founding a book publishing house, taking care of fonts, paper thickness, printing types, finding a good offset printing company, establishing contact and finally having the book printed. Today it is long finished and already the first children are enthusiastic about it. And also grown-ups. Meanwhile, you can buy it in several versions. For example here very close by: in the shop of "Bach 4 You".
It's not a real book, but it is a real publication. Namely, the coloring book about Johann Sebastian Bach for children. Not so long ago the reference "for children" was somewhat superfluous. But ... times have changed and even grown-ups are welcome to paint along.
The coloring book also has a long history. When my husband had successfully found out how to expand the circle of people interested in Bach to include school children and young music fans, he had the desire for a next project, because he had not yet thought of the very small future Bach fans with a music gift. Because for an age of 5 years, the Bach biography is certainly not - not yet - suitable. And so he searched, on the internet and also in the non-virtual world, for artists with whom he could, for a very small budget, make this idea of a coloring book on the subject of Bach a reality. Artists would certainly have been found eventually, but not for a recognition fee. The project was "doomed to failure" after a few months. Then my husband remembered the contact to his cousin Briana Bach-Hertzog, who also painted "Bach in Blue" for the front page of my husband's Bach project. She studied together with fellow students, and one option was that students would certainly paint for a more acceptable fee. He asked Briana, and she didn't look for long, but offered to paint the scenes herself. And so my husband drafted his ideas, Briana made the drawings from them, a bilingual mini-biography completed the whole thing and I did what I always do: the rest. Today, the painting book is well-received, especially in various Bach institutions in the major Bach locations.
Tin figures on the subject of Bach are an exciting thing. Of course, they belong in the publishing program if my father-in-law is a collector of tin figures.
For many years Peter Bach, Sr., father of my husband Peter Bach, Jr., collected tin figures. And the fact, that he was no tin soldiers collector, was very important to him. And also that his figures were not made of lead. There were tin figures related to Bach even before our "Johann Sebastian Bach Mission" existed. The only thing is that we did not like the flat Bach figures. The 3-D one, as shown in the picture above, is different. That ... is perfect. Both as a blank, as experts call it, and painted.
