Sample Album – Toscana
I love our new album company. I had been looking for an album company that both represents Sarah and me along with our brand, and also offers top of the line quality. It took a little searching, but I found what I was looking for. All of our albums are hand made, and the Couture|Book albums are hand-made, hand-stitched, hand woven, hand-torn, etc…. These books are made to exacting standards, and are similar in feel to a fine-art book. The Toscana album is one of my favorites, and the moment I touched this album I knew that I was holding something special. I was holding an heirloom.
I love the romance that is evoked from just the look of this album, with it’s fine-art, hand-torn, white felt pages, to the pains-taking care that is put into the detail of fastening the book together. To ensure that yours is made to your specifications, the book is available in three different color options: light leather, dark leather, and woven leather. We can offer 5 different fine-art papers, from a thick and sturdy white linen, to recycled, eco-friendly option. I love the look of the hand-torn edges, but a clean cut is also available. These books are hand-crafted on old-world bindery equipment. The same kind that made the old books that are still intact to this day.
The sheath album cover is a separate option, and well worth it. The combination of the archival print quality, and the sheath box ensure that your album will stay safe and secure. This is an album that you will want to show to your children, grandchildren, and in turn, have them show their grandchildren. The Toscana wedding book is made that well. It will stand the test of time, and is well worth the investment. As shown here, the Toscana album with 100 pages, and sheath go for $4,400, or $3200 without the case. The same book & case with 200 pages goes for $4900, and the 300 page option for $5,325.
