1859 melbourne football club rules facsimile
Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)
James Thompson, the Secretary of the club, wrote The Melbourne Football Club Rules on paper by after a meeting about the rules on May 17, 1859 at the Parade Hotel.
Our work was to reproduce the originals for display at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Beginning with photography, we produced digital prints onto handmade matt paper, applied techniques for creating an aged and distressed look, and hand burnishing over the handwritten text to create realistic embossing of the paper.
