King Arthur Flour had their logo made into a real cookie for their King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion, so it seemed only natural to celebrate the cookie-making process with a wrap around photo of cookie-making things.
This book, self-published after seven years of painstaking research, is truly a labor of love. Authored by a proud descendant of one of New England's earliest settlers, it chronicles the life and times of two of her extraordinary ancestors. It also proved to be an intellectually fascinating project for this history-minded designer.
The Greenwich Library Oral History Project (Greenwich, Connecticut) interviewed a local resident about her childhood memories of growing up in Cos Cob Connecticut in the 1920s and 30s. The book's jacket includes a wraparound photo from the period, a photo of the narrator, and a walking map of Cos Cob in the 1920s.
Another Greenwich Library Oral History Project book jacket. Five narrators recall the Havemeyer estate from the early 1900s to today's community of 1,300. In 1946 former heavyweight champion Gene Tunney and others created Havemeyer Park, a new development aimed at returning WWll veterans. They could own their own home here for under $10,000. Combining a vintage photo of the Havemeyers framed by a map of Havemeyer Park with photos of the developers and their handiwork helps bring the time period covered by the narrators to life.
