Ahhhh, we’re here. This post reveals the last Premium Album that I offer, from one more totally separate album provider. This is the album I’ve been most excited about all along, for two reasons. First of all, it’s leather, and leather is always what I’ve envisioned as being a huge characteristic of a top-of-the-line photography album. I suppose I have a soft spot for it. Secondly, this album features my favorite dog in the world: my girl Bailey.
The box it comes in is leather, and has a small magnetic closure.
Oh. Oh yes. Take in that leather.
And the imprinting of Bailey’s name on the cover…
I hope you can see the texture of the leather. It’s top-of-the-line, and I could tell you the technical qualifications a quality guarantees surrounding it… but suffice to say, it’s NICE. And not just “nice”… I mean NICE.
The pages have a substrate in-between them that’s actually a different color than the prints. I think it gives the album’s side view a really distinctive look!
A black spread to start…
With my embossed logo on the inside cover!
Could these pages be any flatter? They’re so flat they’re bending back with the cover! I love that they lay directly against it like that.
Sigh. I know I’m a nerd for swooning over an album… but that’s okay with me.
Oh hey Bailey! Here’s an example of a spread – you can see that there’s a seam in the middle (not really a gutter, per se) but it’s so thin that in the 24-inch span of this book (it measures 12×12 when closed) I think it hardly makes any difference in the overall layout.
A closer look at the pages…
More leather texture. Man I wish you could feel this through your screen…
I know these photos haven’t done this album (or the photo-cover one, or the silk one) justice. But I hope you can see a small part of why I’ve been so, so excited for a very long time to introduce these products. They are at the very top of the line, the best of the best in the photography industry, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to offer them to my clients!
Thanks for taking a look!
