A little while back Molly posted here about a newfound obsession, Pinhole Press. Pinhole Press is a site deticated to creating “beautifully simple photo gifts”. Their products are just that, beautiful and simple. Both of us had been dying for a chance to create something via the Pinhole site, so when my boyfriends and my anniversary was approaching I jumped at the chance to create a photo book.
Words cannot describe the way I felt when the book that I had created came in the mail. It was absolutely gorgeous, but at the same time so perfectly clean and simple. The pretty matte pages and plain white backgrounds really make each photo stand out. Which they should – the pictures are the main attraction of the book, right?! Because I have more pictures than I know what to do with, I created the largest size in their photo books – the 97 photos version. The book is literally a thick coffe table-like book that is bound in a linen color of your choice – very good looking. What I may love the absolute most is the cover page – an edge to edge picture of your choice. It really is a work of art. As Mol said in her post about Pinhole, who needs the wild backgrounds and fonts, isn’t the focus supposed to be on the pictures anyway?!
Since creating my book and seeing the final product, Mol and I have sent many friends and coworkers to Pinhole who have all created similarly beautiful picture gifts. Now I am just trying to find someone with a baby or a baby on the way to dive into their new and wonderful baby department. Too. Cute. For. Words. Even if you don’t have a baby you should probably just go on to check out all of the precious baby pictures.
Sidenote: Yes, we are obsessed with our dogs. Should probably make my next Pinhole Press project be a book just with pictures of them…
