An opportunity to reflect on the progress made over the 15 years of the ADC’s existence, and to look ahead at the potential for future progression. The foreword by then-President A.

The simple typographic cover concept blends symmetry and asymmetry through a simple ’15′ in Roman numerals. The interior is printed in black and white and follows a clear grid structure throughout to present the work and accompanying texts. Carl Brett was 35 when he designed this publication, and had been working at Howarth & Smith for 4 years. He would go on to become President of the Club in 1968.
