Charming short-stories capturing the personalities of an extended family.
When Glenn approached us to work on his project, the challenge lay in condensing all his wonderful anecdotes into one beautiful, coherent book: Glenn is a true lover of stories and collects them with the same adventurous spirit he tackles life.
After over a dozen hours of interviews, we narrowed down this book to focus on the Harts, Glenn's mother's side of the family - a family supremely rich in personality. We transformed the colourful stories of his ancestors into a unique package that combines hilarious stories with fascinating historical context.
In designing the book, every aspect (colours, fonts, dimensions...) was customised to suit the family's personality, with Glenn providing gems of memorabilia, and complementing our illustrations with some of his very own lovely ones.
65 copies were printed on Conqueror Cream Wove, a paper that couples superb, high-contrast matt printing performance with the warm touch of an authentic wove. Younger generations were especially considered when creating this keepsake, so that they could continue to access their heritage.
