thick, heavy and you can easily recognize it from a mile away. that’s what a typical wedding album is. then photographers started offering “coffetable” albums. they’re a bit thinner with pages pasted on thin cardboards. they look more like baby books than coffeetable books. 😆
and then there is the artbook.
the artbook is a unique product offered by fol rana jr. it has the look and feel of a true coffeetable book. a unique product indeed that’s why we wanted one for our wedding. it took a while but we finally got ours just today. 🙂
even though we already knew what it would like (layouts are pre-approved before printing), it’s just different seeing the layouts printed and bound together in a book. heck, even the smell is different. 😀
the printing quality is exquisite, giving justice to the elegant layouting done.
besides absolutely loving the album, we love the way it was packaged too. to protect the artbook, it has:
- a classy leather case
- a printed hard case
- and a book jacket
the front and back cover layout couldn’t have been more perfect. to top it off, our love story is printed at the back. 🙂
just to give you an idea how thin our artbook is, that’s 6 five-peso coins stacked beside our artbook. even my phone is twice as thick as our artbook. we haven’t seen a 50-page wedding album this thin other than the artbook.
browsing through the pages of our artbook brings back memories of our wedding day. that’s more than enough to bring a smile off our faces. 🙂
