At Plantain, we craft bespoke family history books and memoirs.
Sandra Perkins approached us to document her mother-in-law’s story, a brave woman who came into her own when many countries were gaining their independence from the UK.
This book takes us through the eyes of Edrisse Perkins, a young woman who decided, back in the 1950s, that she wanted to forge a career in the medical field. She travelled by ship to England and overcame personal and social obstacles that allowed her to achieve a level of success atypical of a woman at the time.
Edrisse was printed on birch paper, a paper selected to add texture to the story, personality, memorabilia and design. The cover is a textured fine grey linen.
