A dream job! For the Chairman of the Board who was retiring after a decade of service, this private school chose to create a scrapbook of testimonials and artwork as an acknowledgement for all his service. With over 30 pages incorporating lettering and/or design elements, many of which were inspired by the stunning architecture on campus, the project was challenging and incredibly rewarding to create.
The front page featured here 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.
