Blurb is a publishing platform where YOU can easily design and publish professional quality books. I asked the people at Blurb for a bit more information - are they photo-book specific? Who should use them? How customizable is it? Blurb answered:
"When I say books, I mean anything from a photo book outlining your last vacation to a full-blown novel. Blurb is especially useful for creative types who are storytellers by nature because it enables you to customize every last square inch of your book. From the photography to the fonts, the design is entirely up to you"
You could make photo books, an instagram book, cookbook, notebook...the options really are endless. Here are some great examples of what creative folks have managed to churn out:
Love the idea of making a family cookbook with all of your favourite recipes!
A wedding book is SUCH a great idea - perfect place to put all your shots, and a great gift for your parents, new parents-in-law, or bridal party / groomsmen
Or you could do a much more modern take on the baby book... I have also heard of people making"year books" - photo books that capture everything the family has done that year (what a great way to make sure your photos don't just live on a computer!)
