Boston Publishing presents: The Wall 25th Anniversary
We produced The Wall for Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It documents the history of one of America’s greatest memorials and captures the intense emotions of loss, mourning, and healing that mark the veteran experience at the Wall.
The publication, which was concepted from scratch, executed, and printed within four weeks, was designed in a high-quality magazine-style format accessible to VVA’s members and veterans in general. VVA wanted a commemorative publication that complemented, yet was fancier than its black-and-white, tabloid-style bimonthly.
This publication was distributed at the Wall as General Colin Powell presided over the ceremonies, and more than 170,000 copies were distributed at all VA Hospitals and Outreach Centers—they were also hand delivered to every member of Congress.
