I took me months to go through the photos that I gathered in my short time in the United Kingdom. At the end of it I decided that I should do something more with them than just put them up on a website, so we decided to make some Christmas gifts for family. To that end, we made a Blurb book.
Blurb is one of many self publishing book printers out there. I was able to make several inexpensive, but very nice photo books, in both soft and hard covers. You can print as many or few books as you want, so I got enough to give away to some of the family (and one for me too). My book is 40 pages and I was really impressed with the quality of the colour prints.
We finished the book back in November, but had to keep it quiet untill after Christmas. It is a nice keepsake and a great way to share the photos and memories with others. I already have plans to make more books in the future.
