I was approached this Summer by a lovely school who wanted to dedicate an album to a wonderful head teacher who as retiring at the end of the year. It was an amazing album to work on - collated into years, it contained artwork and letters from every child at the school, memories on post cards from parents, teachers and staff and diary entries from the previous Headmasters describing the career of the now retiring Head.
The opening page
The school provided graphics and photos from around the school, art cards found in the Head's office and key words that represented the ethos of the school. All were incorporated in to the album.
There was so much material, I simply couldn't fit it all on the pages so I crafted white folded inserts to slip into the album, these folded out and housed every piece of artwork.
The school were very keen to make the album as personal as possible so I crafted two bespoke albums to house the pages and the additional material. The theme was one of the sea and relaxation. I crafted a bespoke box to the back and printed both the cover and the lining of the albums.
The Headmistress was delighted with the album
and the school sent me a lovely testimonial
