This is my second book and I'm just as excited, if not more to receive it!!!

I'd love feed back:

p.s. does anyone know how to save images from your book so that you can post page from your page on a website?
aparkerw 14 years ago
kaityv, the preview looked nice. What was your first book about?
Also, do you think this will be a trend? That you'll do a yearly summary every year?

Mine is
It's with Norwegian captions, and is like a photoalbum for my dad.

I'm doing the 365 projects at the moment (or rather 366 this year), and I want to make a blurb book when I'm finished. It's almost a year until that time though, and I have to not abandon the project :) Hopefully I'll do good. But I think I'll have to make a book in the meantime also, because I loved the first book I made!
kaityv 14 years ago
I made a family photo book for my dad for Christmas and he loved it. I'm trying to start a small business making books (wedding, vacations, etc.). Yeah, I'd like to made a book a year with my photos (although I'll probably end up making more then that). I feel like it's such an exciting way to interact with pictures.

Your book looks very nice as well. I went on a similar trip over a year ago (before my SLR camera).

Neat idea! I love looking at new books people are making.

kaityv & aparkerw I love your books! *sigh* I've always wanted to go to Italy.

Here's mine but the first few pages aren't very interesting because I didn't get to our Fiji pictures until page 15.

It took me 3 tries to get the black and white images right. In the first copy, they were too magenta and too dark. In the 2nd version, I over compensated and some were too light. But the 3rd version seems just about right. My first book, which was in color, was much easier to do.

Here is the bookstore page:

i made a book for my grandmother:

bubbelah with miles

she was always very supportive of me growing up, especially with my 2 favorite interests: music and photography. my "bubbie" gave me my first camera when i was 8, and always was encouraging my endeavors as a DJ.

to show my appreciation i made this book. it was pretty meaningful to her. when i gave it to her she was almost speechless. my bubs is the bomb.

the book is all my best photography from the last couple of years.. mostly pictures of things that have to do with music and family and other things important.

dig it.

I actually got into the blurb thing for a project for my final year of uni, but loved making it, and opening it for the first time; and frankly can't wait till i build up enough pictures worthy of a second 'publishing'.

This one is basically a cross sectional view of two of my three hometowns, dubai and toronto, all the pictures (and more because i couldn't afford to print 150 pages) are on my flickr page. Everyone else's books look really great too.
Zach_ManchesterUK 14 years ago
I made a book and the experience from start to finish was really positive. As you might see from my photostream, I am kind of, erm, eclectic in my photography. Quite a few friends bought a copy. At the time Blurb didn't allow people outside of US to charge extra to make a profit. Not a problem, as i didn't want to profit from friends, and never will.

I did spend silly money on buying 10 copies for friends, but it made them happy!

received the first copies a week ago and I am very happy about the outcome.
It looks exactly as designed with booksmart, the quality is really great (allthough I'd preferred it with mat paper not glossy) it's just bad you can see only the first 15 pages in the preview on the bookstore, because there are many more interesting pics on the next pages. Maybe that's something that one should consider when designing the book, so that people really can get a preview at the interesting things, could help with the sales.
I'll surely consider it for my next book, whenever that will be.
