John Reinhardt1

I live in a small golf community, Lake Jovita, in Dade City, Florida, with my wife, Lynn, and our Jack Russell, Zoey. Our daughter lives nearby in Tampa.

We are enjoying the fantastic weather, golf, community activities, friends, family, and an endless list of things to do and places to go!

5 years as lead book designer designer for Irving Perkins Associates

25th year as owner of John Reinhardt Book Design

While living in Illinois, Lynn and I would watch "Newhart" every Monday evening. I guess the music finally got to us. We sold our house, left our careers, sold our '73 BMW Bavaria, and packed everything we owned into a Ryder truck and moved to Vermont. We spent 32 years in Vermont, raising  our daughter, serving on school boards, being active in our community, and enjoying the rural life. However, After 30+ Vermont winters, we decided it was time to move south. With our daughter living in Tampa, FL, we now live in Lake Jovita, just north of Tampa! We are loving the Florida weather and year-round lifestyle.

It hasn't been easy,
but it's been worth it!

I spend most of my time:

  • Designing books
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Walking
  • Day trips
  • Playing with our dog
  • Indoor rowing
  • Magic
  • Formula 1
  • Bicycling
  • Computer stuff!
  • Watching TV
  • Golf
  • Shooting pool
  • Watches

Enough about me . . .

If you don't wake up each morning with the desire to pursue your profession with passion and the never-ending desire to do a better job today than you did yesterday, then please, for the benefit of the rest of us, go back to bed!

There’s nothing more precious than daddy’s little girl. This is a picture of my daughter, Kim, and me “way back when.” Times sure have changed since then. My daughter is now living in Tampa, working hard and enjoying life, and am a few pounds heavier and I no longer wear glasses (contacts now)!

Kim is the light of my life. She has a real talent for managing people and and organizing events, interior and display decoration, design in general, and simply getting things done.
