Book In Hand

It only seems appropriate that my finished Italy Photobook should arrive exactly one year after our trip. The folks at Blurb, as usual, did a fabulous job printing and binding this thing - and even shipped it out three days earlier than estimated.

I upgraded the paper to their ProLine Pearl Photo papers and I am glad I did - the thickness and weight is heavier and more durable than their Premium paper. The finished book, with 124 pages, looks and feels like a commercially printed coffee table book.

Quite Thick
The book is almost an inch thick!

I've been re-living all the beautiful scenery and fun times we had on our trip. If I had only one regret about the book, is that I didn't include more full page photos - because they look amazing in this book.

Open Book

In addition to the Italy book, I've made two other Blurb Books - My trip to London in May, 2010 and my son's 5th grade Rube Goldberg Competition. I've included the link to the London Book here.

So, get those pictures off your hard drive and printed into a book. That's my next challenge / project - start with 2009's P365 photos and get them into a book. The end result is so very satisfying.

Your book looks beautiful! So glad you mentioned about the new papers. I liked their premium papers, but have been anxious to try their new ones. I have a book that needs making soon. Did you use the new pro cover option or is this the regular hardcover and dust jacket? I have LOVED the image wrap covers, but have been tempted by the NEW!!

WOW! This is something you can enjoy and treasure! I always made scrapbooks when we took trips..back in the olden days! This is such a great idea for NOW! ♥ And to visit Italy is my dream! ♥
