About Our Books

Among the many product offerings from C. Forbes, Inc. are books. These include a leather-bound edition of all Presidential Inaugural addresses, beginning with George Washington in 1789 and including the 2017 address by President Donald Trump. Compiled in one convenient book, it has become a tradition at C. Forbes, Inc. to update this exclusive edition every four years when a president is re-elected or there is a change of administration.

The book contains over 360 pages, a black and white portrait of each president, and is presented in a leather-bound slip cover imprinted with the seal of the President of the United States. As a gift, a collectible, or a piece of history for your personal library, Presidential Inaugural Addresses provides a fascinating look back over time, chronicling the issues that faced our country and our leaders since the first inaugural address.

We also offer a trilogy of children’s books, titled “The Way”, “Unconditional Love”, and “The Lord’s Prayer.” Co-authored by Chip Forbes, with vibrant color illustrations by our Creative Director, Mark Rhea, the stories come to life and offer messages of hope and love.  Purchased separately, or as a set, theses hardback books are a meaningful addition to any child’s collection, and provide inspiration for adults as well.


Released in December 2017, the landmark book, America’s Favorite Flies, features stunning full color photographs of fly fishing flies submitted by 224 collaborators. Also included are enlightening biographies of the contributors, special essays, and a gallery of fly fishing related art contributed by well-known artists throughout North America.

Contributors to the book include former President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter, John Bryan, and Lefty Kreh. The Bunyan Bug fly, created by Norman Means (who went by the name Paul Bunyan), and featured in the movie “A River Runs Through It”, is among the creations featured. Proceeds from the book will go to the Native Fish Society and James River Association, whose efforts help protect and sustain healthy waters and native fisheries.
