Bob Franks of Itawamba Historical Review wrote that he was also trying Blurb and had this to offer:
Today Bob received his Blurb published book carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap and packed in a sturdy box. The book was ordered August 3 and shipped August 12, it arrived UPS Ground this afternoon.
I downloaded the software and played around with it. One thing I like about the software is you can print a proof copy of the book you are working on. I simply printed to a PDF file. The software offers some nice templates also. I've already created a 40-page 8x10 landscape sized book and ordered it Monday. I ordered just two copies to see how they turn out and if I am pleased will order more.
Bob is extremely pleased. He writes that the cover is a heavy stock glossy paper with semi-gloss pages on the inside. Of the quality Bob says:
It simply looks like a professionally produced book. They did an extremely good job. My first book was a 40-page book of photographs, softbound 8x10 landscape sized book. I will probably order a hardbound copy of the book now as they have the book already uploaded.
Here is a photo of the cover and another of Bob's beautiful photographs inside the book.
