After much of my usual prevarication I’ve finally created a book of 21 of my panoramic photographs of Yorkshire. I’ve used BobBooks rather than iPhoto. We normally use Apple’s iPhoto for our annual books of family photos because the layouts are easy to populate and elegantly designed. However I wanted lay-flat pages for wide panoramic images spread over two pages (that is when you can open the book and not get the image squeezed in and out of the spine at the fold line). BobBooks offer this and printing on photographic lustre paper, which yields better contrast and deeper colours than traditional printing. The layout tools provided are a little clunky (compared to intuitive iPhoto), but worth persevering with to get the image quality.
I wrote the introduction and captions to the book for an interested audience, rather than just the family so that I could offer the book for sale, too (no profit taken – these books are expensive enough as it is). You can check it out here.
