Creative Help

Here's the project: a book full of letters and memories for a set of parents who lost their son. The letters / memories are all typed. There are only minimal pictures. How should I put it together? What binding? What materials? I have lots of ideas, but nothing seems quite right. Despite the fact it's a "memorial" book (if that's even a thing), it doesn't have to be muted colors or anything like that because the son was a "larger than life" type personality. Thoughts? Suggestions? Anything would be great!!

ps. If I can figure out how it's done, this is one of my next projects. These were done by Isaac Salazar in Artesia, NM.

Maybe scrapbook everything. You could make it look really nice.

I would say something that is classy. It will be something that is cherished and loved.

you are so thoughtful. i would consider laminating the pages or doing something to protect them over the years. i like the idea of adding color. Have you considered making an online book? Like Blurb? We used that for our wedding books and they turn out nice. You could just copy and paste each letter to its own page. And there are tons of options for making the backgrounds unique. Cheap too, $40-$60. Just an idea :)

OOH, I'm glad you're taking it on as a project! Did you think of what to do for the memorial book?
