10/100 celebrates both the 100-year anniversary of historic Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, as well as a 10-year collaboration with Ashton Design — preserving the integrity of the park’s glory days in the environmental graphics of a newly renovated facility. Before you get choked up on all that nostalgia, remember there’s no crying in baseball.

Project Description

Being that April 20, 2012 marks the 100th Anniversary of Fenway Park, Ashton Design felt it was perfect timing to create a limited edition book that highlights our role in the historic revitalization of "America's Most Beloved Ballpark." This book chronicles the outcome of bringing the beloved ballpark to its glory days while showcasing our firm's commitment to excellence in environmental graphics.

For more than 10 years, we teamed with Fenway Park's architects and management team to bring "modern nostalgia" to Fenway Park. Saving the park from demolition meant that the fans wanted to keep the memories and the history, but at the same time demanded a state-of-the-art facility. Ashton Design was tasked to ensure the integrity of its nostalgia did not fade.

Production Lesson(s)

We worked closely with Schmitz Press from the beginning of the project to make smart design decisions that would help control the price of the job. The size of the book was determined by how many spreads we could get from a full size press sheet. Choosing 100lb text versus 60lb cover also made a difference in price because it eliminated the need to score the spreads when folding. This was our first time doing an exposed binding as well, so a thin layer of glue had to be applied to the spine to reinforce the structure. In effect, every book had to be shrink-wrapped individually to prevent the books from sticking together.”
