Made a book about our trip to Thailand and Cambodia

Jump to last reply

I made a book for my mother as a gift for her birthday about our trip to Thailand and Cambodia last year from the web site www.blurb.com. Has anyone else used this web site?

I got the book last week and I'm thrilled with the results.
I gave it to my Mom tonight and she was truly impressed with the quality; high praise from someone who has worked in publishing her whole life.

I wanted to share this because I thought some of you might be interested in making books as keepsakes. You can even make coffee-table sized books of your favorite photos.
I found the software very easy to use and versatile. Of course, I learned a lot in the process and I think my second book (about Rome), will be even better.

I opted for a hard cover book with dust jacket and premium paper (worth it!). It was 80 pages and cost about $40 which is not bad for print-on-demand. I think it looks very professional. It took about 10 days to get the book after I uploaded it.

If you want to see an example of my book, you can see the first 15 pages here:

And no, I'm not advertising for this company or for myself. ;-) While you can buy my book from that link above, I don't know why anyone would want to. But I had to make it available for purchase in order to have a link to share.

If anyone is interested in making a book, I can share some tips I learned in the process.
