Funding Sport and the Arts for 21 Years

FSA History Book Cover

I don’t usually use this blog to talk about the work our studio produces, but for this project I’m making an exception.

Gina (my partner) and I began working on this case-bound book back in September 2011 when we were asked by the Foundation for Sport and the Arts to design and produce a book celebrating their 21 year history.

With privileged access to the FSA’s archive we drafted the story of the Foundation and it’s amazing work with Sports and Arts organizations and people up and down the country over the last two decades and more.

The text pages were printed on Hello Silk, with Colorplan endpapers in Dark Grey and a dust jacket in Colorplan pale grey with a buckram finish. Silver foil blocking was added to both the dust jacket and the red leather cover itself.

This project became something of a ‘Labour of Love’ for us. The limited edition book has been very well received and hopefully will be on the owners bookshelves and maybe coffee tables for many years to come.
