Amazing new book created by Maria Mayer Feng

Oh boy, I cannot say enough good things about this book design!

This is a family history book created by an amazing designer out of NYC, Maria Mayer Feng.   She has designed a lot of really interesting and cool books with us in the past, but I think she has taken the cake this time!   There are just so many interesting features she’s incorporated into the design that the book has come out so unique and elegant:

Printed wrap-around cover layout

Scans of original Polaroid pictures, and vellum pocket for actual postcards

Vellum pocket for postcards

Holes punched on page for a great peak-a-boo effect

Hand-written letter mounted directly on the page

Hand-written letter unfolded

Another hand-written note included with scans of other letters

Another letter bound into the book

Thanks again Maria for letting us share this amazing book!
