This highlighted project is a collection of menus, tags, and cards from a voyage taken in the '60s. Our framers, Al and Meredith, picked a simple warm grey matting to complement the font in the menu, illustrated figures and photograph of the boat. The matting design also added a 1/4" of white space around each object to enhance the shapes and sizes of the different items framed. The framed collection of objects creates a nostalgic time capsule of the trip on a Holland America Liner. A pocket on the back holds photocopies of the interiors of the folded card and backs of tags as a bonus.
At The Art Exchange, we love how custom framing creates the opportunity to display not only art but objects that are sentimental in our lives.
