Each section of the book told a different part of the story, from the narrative of the piece, how it was acquired, information on the different animals to conservation methods.
I created custom illustrations and icons to highlight fun facts about the piece.
Several quotes were dispersed throughout the book to break up the layout and add a human element to the storytelling.
Modern technology allowed us to expand on the story of this piece. It was not uncommon in 1867 to use bones to help accurately shape parts of the mount, although it was usually animal bones, not human remains.
The booklet was produced using New Leaf Ingenuity (100% post-consumer waste recycled paper), printed offset, finished with a soft touch coating on the cover, and perfect bound.
