Yes, that’s right! Blurb is coming to Australia on a real live experiential events tour! Blurb are all about bringing your personal stories to life in your very own bookstore-quality book, photo book, magazine or ebook. You simply download their free software, start a new book, load up your photos and text, hit ‘order’ and 2-3 weeks later your product is delivered to your door.
Personally I’m a fan of Blurb and I’ve been using their product for my client work since 2009. I’m in the middle of writing a book that shows busy families how to manage their legacy in photographs. Part of my book includes a how-to process for making your own photo books with Blurb as the example product to use.
Their Aussie events are for designers, bookmakers, bloggers, and photography and creative enthusiasts. Here are the Melbourne events planned:
