It has been such a surprise to me to see how popular my new photographic albums have become. Orders have been steadily coming in and I have been given the opportunity to play around with new sizes, new styles and finishes – it’s been so exciting.
An order came in last week from a lovely client in Surrey who wanted to gift her father a handcrafted photographic album for Christmas. My choice of papers is expanding so it was great to offer this beautiful black and silver handmade Indian cotton paper.
My client was happy for me to come up with a design for the album which is always lovely . The only requests were for ribbon and an album plate to the front cover. I set to work.
The album contained black photographic deckle-edged leaves and cloud glassine paper sheets as with previous albums. It suited the Art Deco style perfectly.
The album was finished with a thick black grosgrain ribbon and crafted bow secured with a large black brad, a simple but decorative finish – perfect for a gentleman. The simple addition of a tag and black elasticated ribbon to the spine finished it off.
I was delighted with the result. As soon as I finish one of these albums, I want to start another straight away – the finished product pleases me no end.
If you fancy owning (or gifting) an album like this, customised or personalised to your own requirements, hop along to my shop. In the meantime, have a look at what my client had to say about the album when she received it.
