The Journal Artbook

It’s unlike anything else – a soft, leather wrap photo album with a cover that envelops pages of beautifully hand-torn cotton rag fine art prints.


Whilst there is a certain wonderful nostalgia about sticking printed photos into an album, in a digital world it has become far easier and cost effective to print your photos directly into a book. Knowing where to start with this can be a little daunting. There are budget online photo books for displaying your phone pics through to professional quality bespoke options.

As always, I’m all about quality and longevity when it comes to printing photos for my clients, I want them to become family heirlooms that are passed down to the children in these photos and to their children.  There is absolutely no reason why these wonderful examples of boutique printing can’t be kept for many generations and this leather wrap photo album is like no other, anywhere.

The moment I came across The Journal Artbook, it was love at first sight. No joke. For me it’s the textures. The incredible butter softness of the leather wrapped around the block of fine art paper is absolute heaven to the fingertips.

That’s even before you turn the pages and feel the incredible lay flat pages trimmed with a hand torn edge. Everything about this little book of memories is perfect. The front page displays custom embossing in classic gold, the rustic leather strap closure winds around the unattached block of pages. The fine, slightly textured surface and feel of this paper are ideal for printing both black and white and color photographs and art reproductions with impressive pictorial depth.

Cotton Rag ArtBook characteristics:
» 100% Archival acid-free natural white cotton paper with colorfastness rated to 100+ years » 310gsm lay-flat pages have the perfect thickness and tight crease
» Deep blacks and vivid colours thanks to archival pigment inks

The Journal Artbook is included with my Gallery Package in a perfect mobile size at 4″ x 4″, it doesn’t seem much. It may be small but it is mighty in its quality. Larger sizes are available on request. The Journal Artbook is perfect for both Newborn and Family Sessions as a keepsake of your photoshoot.

Your album layout will be personally designed by me using a selection of images from your session. You will be able to make amendments before going to print and album production takes around 5 weeks.
