I had the great pleasure of designing and bringing home this treasure. I worked with the author who is passionate about ensuring that her family knows their roots. This book represents years of work on her part, and a short, but intriguing time of my work.
The design was challenging, because so many images from the past had to coincide with family events. I wanted to bring more to this book than standard text with an image or two under a paragraph. This book’s design grid was setup to showcase images in the outer columns, along with others embedded in the body columns. The resulting hardcover book is a family treasure, with an extensive cross reference, but I don’t take credit for anything but the design.
This was a real labor of love for my client, and I’ll always be grateful that I was able to be a part of it.
