Apple Photo Book
I have been trying to get my blog put into books. I used iPhoto to do this. I ordered a book to see what the quality is like. They are priced at $29.99 for a 20 page book. I am doing one book per year, although I think in the future I might have to do 2 books per year- depending on the number of post I have. I also want a book for each of the faces slideshows I did of my girls on the blog.
It isn't quite how they describe it on the website. This is the description: New 11 x 8.5-inch hardcover books feature photo-wrapped covers and matching dust jackets. Every hardcover book uses a traditional bookbinding style — complete with a striped headband — just like books from the bookstore.
There is no striped headband. The book is not photo wrapped, but does have a dust jacket. I don't know why it is different than it says. I am not sure how I feel about it yet. I think I am going to call Apple and ask them why it is different.
I am looking for a good quality photo book service that allows a good amount of text. Shutterfly just doesn't cut it with their text boxes.
