I recently met with the Australian representatives of the online self-publishing company Blurb.
They gave me a voucher to review the service by creating a book from scratch so I made a “Road Less Travelled Photo Book” with Urban, Desert, Mountains and Storm themes using a selection of the many photos I’ve taken over the years.
Please have a look at the book preview below and tell me what you think of the design and photo choices.
Note: the book preview may take a little while to load, click “Fullscreen” in the top right corner to see the book in more detail.
From the book blurb on the inside cover:
Journeys through Urban Streetscapes, Arid Deserts, Snowy Mountains and Stormy Weather in Australia and New Zealand
Photo Locations include:
Australia: Sydney, Stockton Sand Dunes, Painted Desert, Oodnadatta Track, Chambers Pillar, Rainbow Valley, Uluru-Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon (Watarrka), Trephina Gorge, Alice Springs, Charlotte Pass.
New Zealand: Milford Sound, Mitre Peak, Fox Glacier, Tasman Glacier, Lake Tekapo, Dunedin, Wairaurahiri River.
I have initially priced the book at the cost of production so you can buy a copy for your coffee table if you wish for:
- Softcover: AUD $26.95
- Hardcover Dust Jacket: AUD $39.95
- Hardcover ImageWrap: AUD $41.95
I will write an article with tips about how to choose photos and design a great photobook once mine is printed and delivered, so I know if the choices I made were good.
