charlie, a 60th birthday book

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

. . . . .

Here’s a fun 60th birthday book for a guy who loves to have fun. In fact, there were so many photos of Charlie having fun that we decided custom photo endsheets were in order. And we didn’t even use all the photos!

I love the opening page with his name on blue. We scanned an embroidered letterman-type jacket, and it has that vintage feel with the yellowed thread.

We also included notes from family and friends at the end of the book, as well as quotes from his wife and kids in their sections of the book.

Oh, and the bookmark! After we went to press someone found the ticket stub from the 1981 Rolling Stones concert Charlie and friends attended at the Kingdome in Seattle. So we scanned it and turned it into a bookmark. Why not?
