Nova Scotia, book of photographs

I have always called it an "open edition" but this is the last available copy. I made ten of these, with the intention of making more at some time. I suppose that time is now, but I'm not going to make any more like this.

This is a small book, with official Nova Scotia tartan on the cover and it contains a set of my photographs taken of Nova Scotia's rural and coastal areas. It is a hardcover pamphlet structure.

This last copy is now available on Etsy.

When I made this set of books, I was really happy with them. Since then, though, a lot has changed in the realm of digital photo printing. Although the photos in this book look pretty good (I had the photos printed for this edition, over four years ago using a local service), if I were to plan another similar book of photos, I would seriously consider a more professional photo printing option).

I continue to save my favorite photographs of Nova Scotia landscapes so I have a whole new batch of photos that could be used for something like this. Perhaps I'll have to consider designing "Volume 2" of the Nova Scotia book.

A beautiful book, I like the way you have used the map on the cover in a decorative way.

Very nice! I have been thinking of doing something similar. I'm curious, are the photographs printed on the actual bound pages, or are they glued to the pages in some way?
