Receiving a client’s album feels like Christmas morning to me. I open the package a little at a time, savouring each layer of packaging. The funky corrugated box, the tissue, the handmade paper that envelopes the album all tied up in a handmade, paper ribbon and adorned with the skeleton of mulberry leaves. There is art even before I get to the album. Then, the album . . . exquisite, premium quality, top grade materials like leathers and canvases, handmade in the USA. The images, printed on premium papers and laminated for longevity, true colours and true to my design. I love to see a project from beginning to end and to put a piece of art like this into my clients’ hands. I’m not sure who’s more excited, them or me . . .
