L.L. Bean teams with photographer to recreate classic catalog cover illustrations

This will be of interest to fans of L.L. Bean and good advertising (I’m both).

To celebrate its 100-year anniversary, L.L. Bean teamed up with photographer Randal Ford to re-create some of their old catalog illustrations, including the first cover (shown above).

By focusing on casting, styling and location, Ford’s crew recreates the original illustrations as closely as possible. From there, Photoshop was used to retouch the colors, making the image look even more like the original art work.

Check out a behind-the-scenes video of the L.L. Bean Randal Ford shoot, below.
