This book was a parting gift to Kindred’s retiring CEO—he had come in during a bankruptcy and really did quite a job turning things around, and those that worked for and with him wanted to give him something special that wasn’t traditional and expected. Working with letters penned by coworkers and family and highlighting the unique signatures of each, the book is a personal token of a time shared carefully encapsulated in a custom made wooden box that further showcases the care taken by the leader in regards to his people and company.

Two copies were made, one for the CEO, and one as a company record. True, this is a little outside of our typical showings on FPO which tend to have higher print runs, but we thought it could help spark some other ideas.
