Creating a Blurb book with new software

Blurb have just made book publishing much easier by introducing new software called Bookify. I have just managed to create my summer holiday book in just two evenings ! Amazingly simple to use and hopefully the quality will be of the usual excellence.
Here’s a widget of the new book. It’s a lovely reminder of a wonderful holiday.

ffffound as a creative resource

My good friend Steve is always trawling though the website http://www.ffffound.com looking at a marvelous multitude of creative imagery.

It’s a creative hub of like minded people sharing all that is good in photography, design and the arts. It’s amazing to see how imaginative people can be, so I thought I’d share a few of my personal highlights.

Self Publishing

One of the biggest growth areas of photography recently has been the ability of photographers to self publish their work. It’s a wonderful tool to market and promote yourself and your work. Blurb is probably the largest and most popular company in this field. I made a book with them and was delighted with the results. The quality of the printing and production was first class and although it was just for self satisfaction, it has opened up a world of possibilities. It’s quite time consuming but the benefits are immeasurable. I’m currently working on another book and will post the result at a later date. Happy publishing.
