Compile my 365
February 8, 2010 4:29 PM   Subscribe

I just completed a Photo365 project and I'm pretty proud of it. I'd like to create a hard copy of the project to be able to look at and show people, and I'd like to do it fairly inexpensively. I was going to make a photobook, but putting all of those pictures in seems to make the book really expensive. Any ideas on how to compile all 365 photos physically, both inexpensively and with style?

Expense is usually page-count not photo-count but of course 365 is still a lot of pages if they get equal billing. What about you pick the best from each week, give it full-page on left and then the 6 leftovers on the right? That gets you down to 52... and you could go harsher still, e.g. display 1 large and 12-16 small (depending on page aspect ratio).

12 calendar-style posters, titled with the month and year, with a photo for each day laid out in a grid.

LCD photo frame with the whole set loaded and nothing else.

Still do a book, but include multiple photos per page to bring down the price.

183 pages, actually.

What do you consider to be inexpensive? Under $100? $25?

I'd like to do something under $50, if possible.

$44 at will get you up to 200 pages in a softcover 10x8 book plus $7 shipping.

I use blurb. Sort of funky layout engine but I have seen several books from blurb and they were all good.
