I received my studio sample albums last Friday and have been busy admiring them over the weekend. I am simply delighted with them -- beautifully hand-crafted in Italy, they are a perfect complement to the level of dedication I put into creating the images that go into them.
The giant 16x20 showcase album I designed has an leather cover with a clear front cover to show off the underlying image, thick photographic paper pages, and a seamless lay-flat design. It dwarfs the round table I put it on when it is opened up and it is impressive beyond words. Leafing through it is like leafing through a museum or art gallery showpiece. This is the one to aspire to, folks!
I also received some 8x12 sized versions of the primary album that would be perfect as parent albums. As well, 4x5 albums are perfect gifts for grandparents or friends or to keep in the purse for bragging rights.
I challenge anybody to not want one of these for their weddings. :)
