Yesterday we kicked off our Best Gifts of 2008 with the treasured 5 Year Diary. Today, we effuse about the wonder that is Blurb.
At Blurb, you can make your own book, easily and fabulously. Kind of like those Shutterfly albums, but with a completely professional bookstore look (full book jacket included and everything). We gave one of these capturing the best moments of 2008 to our beloved for Christmas and it was “the best gift ever.”
The great thing is the flexibility. You can create photo books, photo books with captions and text, purely text books, portfolios, blog books, wedding books, travel books, cookbooks and more.
If you’re not super technical, it’s a breeze. Simply download the free BookSmart software and choose from a great variety of layouts per page. Or, if you’re fab with Photoshop, you can even create your own custom layouts.
What’s cool, for all you designer, artist, writer and photographer types out there, is that you can even choose to sell your finished book through Blurb. For a profit.
Scope out all the options and get your creative juices flowing. We’re in the process of making a unique book proposal/mock-up there ourselves.
