Map Photo Album

Below are pics of a custom-designed trip photo album I completed recently. It is to be a wedding gift for a couple who are traveling around the world for their honeymoon.

Map photo album
The cover was a map of Central Europe taken from a 1924 World Atlas. The back cover was a linen-textured handmade paper.

Vintage French linen seam binding
The album was tied with two pieces of vintage French seam binding.

Map photo album endpapers
The endpapers were from an old 1950s atlas and said Occident and Orient--fitting for a trip around the world.


Photo corners
I included old-fashioned picture corners that matched the heavyweight, cream-colored interior pages. The packaging coordinated with the album's endpapers. One packet had a European postage stamp and one had an Asian postage stamp.

I hope the couple likes it.
