BABY BOOKS

Our Baby Books have 36 pages, illustrated with vintage silhouettes, covering a child's life from before birth to five. The paper used inside the book is Stonehenge 90 lb, acid-free drawing paper, and the color used inside the book coordinates with the cover paper; the cover papers come from all over the world, many being hand printed. We can easily modify the family pages for adoptions, even single-parent adoptions, or for same-sex parents. The books open flat and have tiny envelopes for a lock of hair and the first tooth lost, and a large 9 x 11 vellum envelope in the back for cards, drawings, extra photos, even a sonogram. The book's pages measure 9 by 11 inches; the whole book is 9.5 by 11.5 inches.

The cost of our baby books is $60 for books with machine printed cover paper (excepting Japanese prints), and $70 for hand printed and Japanese cover paper. The book shown above is covered in hand-printed paste paper from Italy and costs $70. The spine can also be made in light green or pink, and the paper comes in blue (see below).

Here are some of our other baby books, with prices and descriptions; the prints are shown in a much reduced size.

BRAG BOOKS - MINI Photo Albums - $8

A "brag book" is a small album with 4 by 6 photo sleeves, enough for 24 photos. Paper Antix can make "brag books" to match any of the baby books, or in any of our papers.

Some of the books open on the 6-inch side for vertical pictures, and some open on the 4-inch size for horizontally-oriented pictures. At the right is pictured a vertical-opening book opened to show the plastic sleeve pages.

PHOTO ALBUMS

Our photo albums open flat. The pages are made with 90-lb. acid free Stonehenge drawing paper with the natural deckle edge at the front. The pages are sewn with spacers between them to allow for the expansion which will occur when photographs are added. Sizes and number of pages varies. We can make any size album up to 13 inches wide by 19 inches tall, but most of our popular size is 9 by 11 inches.

SMALL ALBUMS TIED WITH RIBBONS

NOTE: The section below is out of date. It is in the process of being updated. Please inquire before buying, in case we no longer have the album.

These albums do not have sewn-in pages like our traditional albums do; the signatures (sets of pages) are tied onto the cover spine with ribbon. They can be used as guestbooks as well as photo albums, but they are designed to expand when photos are added to the pages. The middle photo below shows how the book is constructed.

Below are some of our ribbon albums. As long as we have the paper, we can make ribbon albums to match wedding journals, baby books, guestbooks or traditional sewn photo albums. Sizes vary between 6 by 7 inches to 8 by 8 inches.

Folding Albums

Origami Scrapbook

This unusual album folds up to a square and ties with a ribbon, but when it is opened, the pages unfold in triangles and squares. The album can be hung up vertically to display photos and memorabilia or autographs, or it can stay tied and viewed horizontally, more like a book.

The book is 4 3/4 inches square.

Price: $15.00

The origami scrapbook, when open.

There are a total of six square pages and twenty triangle pages. The book unfolds to reveal a cascade of all twenty-six panels. The book ties closed with a ribbon.

These books are our most popular item at shows, so our inventory is always changing. Email us and ask us to make one for you or to send pictures of what we have on hand.
