love love LOVE my new sample coffee table book! coffee table books are a bit different from albums. the main difference being in the page thickness (more magazine-like for coffee table books, more cardboard-thickness for albums) and the cover (thin silk-cover for coffee table books, thick leather or vegan alternative for albums). of course, coffee table books also have the photographs printed onto the page itself, where an album is actually a large photograph adhered to the cardboard-like pages so the print quality is noticeably different as well.
i offer them both to give a variety of choice and price range to my clients. recently i changed my format a little bit. i used to use backgrounds in my books, but i found that white pages suit me a little better. white doesn’t distract or take anything away from the photographs and it’s much more timeless (not to mention easier to design). so i redesigned a sample set to take to consults. the coffee table book got here yesterday and i love it! the silk is awesome…changing colors slightly depending on the light. can’t wait for the album to get here!
yay! what do you think? :)
