Our photo books are printed on beautiful archival papers made and tested to last centuries. Heavy weight but flexible and supple, these pages are a joy to look at and touch. The crisp clear images in these custom photo books resist scratching and are more permanent than photographs. Smyth sewn signatures are the gold standard of the craft of bookbinding. Sewn in the middle of the fold to create 12-page booklets, which are then sewn together to create book block from as few as 24 to more than 300 pages, these strong and beautiful books will always open flat and will never come apart. These are the only photo books available with this high quality sewn binding. Choose gorgeous fabrics, full grain or bonded leathers, graphic covers, or any combination.
