A Sovereign In My Pocket

The Story of Archibald Greves by Adam Cutforth.

The Book’s Author asked Ultragraphics to design the publication. This included complicated typography and laying the publication out in two languages on facing pages.

Many of the original images were badly damaged and subsequently repaired in Photoshop.
