Bill Clinton presentation Volume

Frank McCourt - The Teacher Man

We were brought on board  to create and design a leather bookbox to contain Frank McCourts  The Teacher Man. We bound Solander boxes in quarter goatskin leather, raised bands on the spine, gold tooling. A personalised inscription page in handmade paper on the inside of the box. 
These were sent to America and presented personally to benefactors by ex American President Bill Clinton at a fund raising dinner in New York. Bill launched the Frank Mc Court Chair in Creative writing, which will based in the University of Limerick, Ireland.

Professor Don Barry, President of University of Limerick presents President Bill Clinton with a commemorative issue of Frank McCourt's Teacher Man at the launch in New York of the Frank McCourt Chair in Creative Writing at University of Limerick
