This award was for the Chairman of the Board when he retired after a decade of service. Avon Old Farms chose to create a scrapbook of testimonials and artwork as a celebration of his accomplishments. The scrapbook incorporated over 30 pages of lettering and/or painted elements, all of which were inspired by the stunning architecture and the beautiful oaks and pines that encircled the campus.

The front page featured above was inspired by stone-carved letters that are incorporated into several of the original buildings on campus. (see picture below) The lettering appears off-kilter due to the curve of the page as the book opens. The oak leaves are gilded with 24 karat gold and were drawn based on leaves picked up from campus.

Below is a picture of one of the buildings on campus that inspired the work above with its carved letters.
