This project was an enjoyable trip to take.
One of the members of the Travelers board of directors was stepping down after many years of working with the company and Carolyn Porter (of Porterfolio) was asked to come up with something special as a parting gift.
Carolyn had worked with me in the past on a presentation piece for Nelson Mandela and called me again to work with her on this project. She designed the book and worked with me to determine the structure of the box.
The 18 page book is printed, letterpress, in 3 colors and is quarter bound in red leather with custom made marbled end sheets.
The modified clamshell box is covered in a gray silk cloth (as is the book) and is held shut with a one-of-a-kind stainless steel closure.
At the end of the journey we were all pleased with the outcome and were glad to have taken the road less traveled by.
And that has made all the difference.
