Ella May and Eldon Savage Autobiography

These are pages pulled from a very large book that I put together for Eldon Savage. The original files were a hodge-podge of different chapters saved individually, some of the pages were only available in a physical copy, which I then typed up myself to get it into the computer. There were copies of old photographs, original old photographs, some already scanned, some only available physically. The bottom line was this book came to me as an absolute mess and it was extremely satisfying to see the final printed book. It was over 300 gloss text pages, perfect-bound into a cover that I designed. This book involved design work, copy editing, Photoshop retouching and color management for the photos, extreme file management, meetings with the client, additions, subtractions, formatting chapters and chapter headers, etc. I became very familiar with Eldon’s family history while putting this together; so when it was finished, it was such a great feeling to know how happy he was with it!
