Thanks for the tip, Genevieve ...and I was very interested to discover your range of high-quality Blurb books, since I have been labouring away at producing an illustrated personal memoir on Blurb.

You're welcome Philip.


Blurb books are a lot of fun but also a lot of work. My last one, "Australia", took a lot of efforts but was very rewarding.

Shame I discovered the Nik Colour Efex Pro filter after I did the book. I'm beating myself up for that.


All the best with your book and with Alamy.
