An 824-page hand-bound book weighing 37kg, celebrating the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Printed on a 200gsm silk stock, covered in purple leather, foil blocked with Her Majesty’s cypher, and presented in a purple silk covered clamshell. 

As the lead designer I was heavily involved in picture research, and worked closely with the editor and writers to create the publication. If you haven't already, have a flick through the spreads above.
