I’m so excited to finally be sharing this book with you!
When Janda and I first met over coffee last February, we looked at a book she had just made through a photobook service. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite capture her maternal grandparent’s story the way she hoped. Now she wanted to do it right.
Not only that, Janda really wanted to create a look/feel that could be translated into future books about other branches of her family. So, here is what we created – a volume one about her maternal grandparents. Next up is a book about her dad’s family.
I’m quite proud of our work together on this book. Thank you, Janda…we did it!
(book details: 100 page, 11×17 family history book, foil stamped title, ribbon bookmarks)
We included 3 bookmarks, one for each family tree. Many of Janda’s ancestors shared the same names (even in the same generation!) so being able to refer back to the trees is very helpful.
A few spreads showing the page styles we used – a chapter beginning, and a “kids” page.
In her research, Janda uncovered some wonderful old documents she wanted to include. We added these archival glassine envelopes to hold them, so you can actually touch and feel bits of her family history.
I look forward to volume 2!
