The Port of Southampton wanted to commemorate its 175th Anniversary and we were asked to produced this 96-page hardback book detailing the incredible history of the country’s most important port.
Starting with the famous 1838 painting of the laying of the foundation stone and running through the early days of the port, classic liners to modern giants as well as the port's role in various conflicts, the book is a unique pictorial record.
Just 1,000 copies of the book were printed, with Southampton staff of port operator Associated British Ports each being given a copy to mark the milestone.
The front cover was detailed with silver foil. A close-up shot of this can be found here.
