In case you needed a little more motivation to get started on that blog book…
Here’s a spread of my recent book. It covers a year and a half and is 123 pages long! It includes, chronologically, the birth of both of my boys. I LOVE this book!
The front cover.
The back cover.
This is the first time I opted for the 12×12 size. Granted, it’s more expensive, but I was also hesitant because 12×12 books don’t fit quite the same as 8×11 books in a bookshelf. (And someday I plan to have a whole slew of these blog books lined up on a shelf!)
In the end, I’m pleased as punch that I took the leap. When designing the page layouts, it is much easier to fit big, beautiful photographs on 12×12 sheets, and the book itself has such a substantial feel (kind of like a professional wedding album). If I had a coffee table (and if I had bought an extra copy that I didn’t mind getting handled frequently by toddlers!), this would be the perfect book for it.
I’d say it was well worth the hours I spent laying out the pages!
