The original Design concept was to have the entire cover of the portfolio be an uninterrupted photo (see photo at left). Cool idea. I devised techniques to make the paper photos survive repeated use. It looked great but was rejected because the image was permanent and would not allow for updates. Hence the idea of the removable dust jacket (top & below left photos show three of the five images used as dust jackets).
The dust jackets are giant wrap around images which I had dry mounted with an archival UV protecting matte laminate for durability. I tailored the dust jacket to wrap around the cover snugly so it does not fall off when the portfolio is opened and being viewed. The chocolate brown fabric portfolio has an Internal Screw-Post Mechanism with sky blue paper IFC/IBC & Pocket. Scott Frances’s logotype was foil stamped on the front cover and spine in matching blue foil.
