This photo album features hand letterpress-printed paper using a chocolate brown ink. I printed the paper myself at the Dartmouth College letterpress studio. The 100% cotton handmade cover paper is a speckled medium brown color with a wonderful texture that comes from cinnamon inclusions (you can’t smell it). The spine is covered in a brown bookcloth from Germany. The book is bound using aluminum screw posts, reminiscent of a dog collar.
The pages are made of a 100% recycled paper containing 30% post consumer content. The paper is smooth with small visible flecks which add to its earthy, yet contemporary feel. Paper filler strips have been inserted between the pages to accommodate the thickness of your added photos – this prevents the album from puffing open when filled.
All of my books are made using only the finest acid-free and archival materials. This photo album is made in the traditional style that you may recall from an earlier time – like the one your grandparents had – refined, yet functional. Your cherished memories deserve a book that’s just as meaningful.
With your purchase, you will receive a pack of self-adhesive photo corners in your choice of black, gold, silver, kraft, cream, or white.
