Blurb

It's now ridiculously easy to create your own small run of books for gifts, portfolios, or even sales- in fact, Blurb functions much like the CafePress of vanity publishers, offering you the ability to sell your publications through their bookstore for free. Blurb offers a nice selection of formats ranging from small square ($12.95+), B&w text only ($4.95 each!) to a large coffee table book (54.95+). They offer full bleeds on hard covers and will print up to 440 pages (a 440 page 13"x11" hardcover with full bleed will cost $169.96, while a 40 page book will cost $56.95). Their handy layout software is nice for novices and works on both Mac and PC.

Much to my visual pleasure, the Aussie artist SKAFFS has illustrated his first tale for kids at heart. No wonder it blooms with retina-popping delight and serves up cute critters of the land down under. Here innocence is no reason not to explore the unknown, not an excuse to fear it - those were the days! Plus it has an childlike buoyancy which allows anything to happen under the sun. In an age of troubles, SKAFFS art washes over my eyeballs like a cool breeze and makes bedtimes go down silky smooth.

But at a price that would make you hope she'll use it when it comes time for a wedding gown, too..... from the site: Every girl dreams of being a fashion designer. Now she can actually design her own clothes. It all begins with the Designer?s Portfolio, which includes everything a young designer needs to begin the process, including fabric swatches, pencils, sketchpad, and a questionnaire for her and her parents to capture the details. She will choose from swatches of organza, taffeta, charmeuse, chiffon, and other fabrics to decide on her ideal material. Next she will create her design, then collaborate with a professional New York City fashion designer, who will translate her vision into a one-of-a-kind garment. They will consult on color, fabric, and fit to ensure a perfect rendering of your child?s dream design. For the finishing touch, a custom label, named and designed by the young designer, will be hand-sewn into her one-of-a-kind garment. Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery of the Designer?s Portfolio. Allow 8 weeks from the time you approve your design for delivery of garment.
