12 x 12 Leather Heirloom Album
I photographed this family two years in a row, and this is the second album I designed for them. So crazy about how it turned out. The album material feels soft and luxurious in your hands. It’s made from 100% Italian leather. This one is the “lipstick” color which is a vibrant and bold shade of red. It coordinates well with the outfits they wore and provides a nice contrast to the blue of the ocean.
These heirloom albums come in three sizes: 8″ x 8″, 10″ x 10″ and 12″ x 12″. You can choose between a linen or leather cover and a variety of different colors. This one is a 12″ x 12″ Leather Heirloom Album, however the actual spreads once you open the book is 12″ x 24″, allowing the photos to be a nice, large size. The total number of spreads is 13, so the number of pages is 26.
The album is handmade in the USA by artisans who take pride in what they do. They print the photos on archival photo paper and then adhere them on to a thick substrate. The final product is an heirloom flush mount album that with proper care will last for generations. These albums should always be stored flat in either it’s box or dust cover for added protection.
Whereas digital images have to be stored on online servers and as we all knew can stay there for years without so much as looking at them, albums are a tangible heirloom that you can actually pass down to your kids and grand-kids.
