    Print folio book/album

    Hallo,

    I am wondering if anyone can help with my query.

    I have a selection of 10x8 black and white fibre prints both portrait & landscape format that I am wanting to "show" in an album/folio or presentatoin book. My thoughts are for a 12"x12" page size to allow for margins & so the book doesn't have to be swivelled to see a different image orientation.

    I got a "scrapbooking" cover which I really like but the acetate pages that were supplied are really milky white. The cover is a post-bound design & trying to find alternative inserts is difficult. The obvious UK solution is Spicer Hallfield who make wedding style albums but they have gone into recievership!

    Ideally I would like a page insert that fits the post-bound design that allows a thin overlay cut-out to cover the print.

    Any ideas on UK suppliers or other suggestions on folio books?

    Cheers,
    Sim.

    hi sim

    you might look into bookbinding suppliers in the UK.
    http://www.google.com/search?q=bookb...utf-8&oe=utf-8

    here in the US we have talas and gaylord brothers and other suppliers of book binding + library conservation materials.
    i have some clear pages that i got from talas but they are huge, and i have to cut them down to fit into my books.

    it isn't hard to make a book yourself if the ones you find don't suite your needs.
    the hardest part is making a cover with a hinge ... and getting the supplies like
    the posts and clear pages.

    i got my portfolios made for me by http://www.portfoliobox.com ... they do great work and will work you to make a custom book ...
    i have also made my own hand stitched books ( maybe 15 of them ? ) both stab/japanese bound
    as well as signature bound. it is fun and kind of addictive

    the next one i make ( maybe this summer? ), i plan on documenting the process and writing a small piece for the article section here on apug,
    to show exactly how easy it is

    good luck!

    You could also take a look at Light Impressions - they have a variety of products that might fit your bill.

    Sim, most University towns in the UK have specialist bookbinders who could make you up a Portfolio book,so there should bve somewhere in Bath.

    I know the topic of how to make fiber prints dry flat is a real issue and a regular and heavily covered topic in APUG. However, from the point of view of book binding, do you mount fiber prints and then bind the mountings, or are the prints slipped into some kind of display that keeps them flat. Can you cover that aspect of the process if you do write an article. Thanks.
