From Blog to Book


I wanted to finish my Blurb book before we moved… so I did! I turned my 366 Day Photo Blog into a book.  I made a 13×11 large landscape version for myself (I wanted a big coffee table book) and a smaller 10×8 version that is more affordable.  Gotta love Blurb!

  1. Don’t take this the wrong way, but it seems to me that the decimal point is in the wrong place $229(£151) is very high for any type of book

    • Oh, I know. Unfortunately the base price to make the book is so high, that I only make 40 dollars off of any of the versions of the 366 Day Book. The larger 13×11 version I made more or less for myself, that’s the one that’s $229. I didn’t expect anyone to buy that one. I was glad the smaller 10×8 version wasn’t as bad, considering it’s a 200 page book, with 366 full color pictures in it. Blurb has done such good work in the past that I haven’t been able to find a cheaper way to self publish photography books. Do you know of any?

    • I don’t at the moment but I will be in a different boat as I was going to do a 50 page poetry book and then find some where to self publish a 30 page photo book. I was hoping Lulu would be a viable option for both.

      • I just checked what Lulu would have charged me for the same book, and their prices are even higher. That’s why I’ve stuck with Blurb for now, cheapest and best quality I can find for the money. Good luck with your books! :)
