It's Arrived!!!

Amanda's big surprise has arrived...it is the first three years of her blog as a book! How cool is that? You can check out a few of the pages here by clicking on the book preview. I got it made at Blurb. They take your blog and all its associtated pictures and "slurp" it into a book. You then have to play around a bit to arrange the photos the way you like and do a bit of editing but it is really simple to use their templates.

I also got a book made for my Barking Mad blog (my original dog walking company) and I've just ordered the first year for Paws on the Run (it was actually just shipped today so I need to wait another week or two for it to arrive). They also have templates for photo books, guest books, year books and more. Marlin and I are thinking of putting together a wedding album as we never printed many of our wedding photos - they are all digital.

Great work. I just saw this on Amanda's blog. Did you find the photos came out ok from what I assume are small resolution images from the blog?

When you upload the photos to the blog the full size image is uploaded into Picasa (at least with blogger) so I think this must be where Blurb takes the images from as they all turned out great. The book making program will also let you know if you have any images that aren't a high enough resolution for optimal printing.

I'm thinking about ordering one of these books as a possible proof book for my brides. Are you satisfied with the quality of the book, the binding, the reproduction of the pictures? How does it look?
