The Little Prince Proposal Book January 07, 2016 14:56
Travis contacted us around before Thanksgiving. He had specific book design in his mind, and needed our assistance to bring his idea into a personalized tangible product; The Little Prince Proposal Book. He gave us a short yet very detail instruction of what he wanted on his book cover. He sent us an image of the little prince artwork and specifically want this wording “Reason I want to marry you” to be engraved on the book cover. He wanted blank inside pages, so he filled in the content himself.
Before we worked on this little prince marriage proposal book project, we know very little about this Little Prince artwork. Later we found out online and realized it is belongs to a famous french illustrator/author : Antoine de Saint 1900-1944. Later we found out there also a movie just released not too long ago.
The copyright of this artwork is public domain in the United States (info), we sincerely hope we didn’t infringe the french copyright law here. Our intention is to share an unique marriage proposal from one of our clients to our readers and hope it can inspire others to create more meaningful keepsake projects in their lives.
We hand printed the same little prince artwork on the muslin bag to match the proposal book.
We embossed a heart shape with initial of Travis on the front page to bring some personal touch to it
Coptic stitches binding with dark brown waxed thread.
We watched the Little Prince animated movie after we worked on this Little Prince marriage proposal book during Christmas holidays. We loved it! This movie is very different from those recent computer animated movies like Kung Fu Panda, Frozen, Lion King and etc. Yet the storyline made us think deeply every stages of the young girl’s adventures and the magical world of the little Prince. The movie is very charming and beautifully made. We sure this story means a lot to Travis and his Fiancée.
