I was commissioned to make a collection of envelopes using these wonderful old theatre programmes. It was an enjoyable challenge selecting the most significant pieces of text from the programmes and then making sure that they were still visible when the envelopes were put together. It takes a surprising amount of paper to make one small envelope.
There were some wonderful details on the programmes, including the lovely corner decorations and illustrations.
I worked closely with the framer to select the mount board which reflects the colour and feel of traditional theatre decor.
