Photo book has arrived

Perth to Yurt has arrived!

The first copy of our Mongol Rally photo book arrived yesterday, hot off the blurb.com printing press. I was a bit nervous about how it would turn out, considering that I’d never designed a photo book before, and never seen a book printed by Blurb before so didn’t really know what to expect. But I’m pretty happy with the result.

If I was doing it again, I’d allow a bit more room in the inner page margins – you can’t open a book completely flat and the margin guides in Blurb’s templates are a bit too minimal. The pictures were nowhere near as detailed as you’d get from a similar sized photo print, but that’s to be expected from a book. Colour reproduction was decent. I opted for the “premium matte” paper, which feels quite nice – probably about the minimum I’d want for a photo book.

After correcting a few typos, we should be ready to order a larger batch for friends and family.
