As a surprise birthday gift for his wife, my customer framed a portion of an article in the August 1957 issue of the National Geographic Magazine that referenced the area of Nova Scotia where her father grew up. This particular article was well known in the family and my customer was able to track down the issue of the magazine on the internet.

A photo of her father and uncle also appeared in the article. Since the photo spanned two pages, it was drymounted together to form one larger photo and then floated on the background mat. The cover of the magazine issue, as well as a map of Nova Scotia were also drymounted and floated at different levels to give a 3D effect.
