When I discovered Artifact Uprising I scoured the internet and quite literally have read every blog post on the photo books - I'd be shocked if you could find one I haven't already seen. I knew I wanted to make my own photo books - one for my brother & I, one for my childhood and a Sydney one.
I've made two trips to Sydney in the last two year that I wanted to document - the first was in November 2012 and the second in August 2013 which you can read about here.
The quality of this photo book is fantastic - the pages are lovely and matte, easy to turn and feel great in your hands. Artifact Uprising's method of creating books is very easy, however, it requires planning as you're not able to move pages around as of yet. I'm hoping that's something they work on in future.
One thing I've noticed throughout my photo books is that their printer doesn't handle red tones very well - however, it is fantastic with blue tones. I will be avoiding red in future photo books I print with them.
The spread above is my favourite.
I've decided that I don't like the white border layout - I will definitely print full-bleed with future photo books.
That little scrunch is what happens when you let your brother look at the book before you photograph it.
Another one of my favourite spreads.
All-in-all I'm very happy with the book - the quality of this one is fantastic and it's a lovely way to capture my favourite city in the world. I will still print out 4x6 prints of my photos as I find them more satisfying to hold in my hands than a photo book but that's just me.
If you have any questions or have made photo books with Artifact Uprising before let me know what you think!
Also, I'd just like to quickly say thank you to Fragile Bird for featuring me on her blog - I appreciate it very much. :)
