New Sample Album

Hi everyone!  It’s Friday and I’m pleased to unveil another new studio sample – this gorgeous 10×10 inch flush mount featuring Kami & Jeremy’s wedding. This cover is a new leather for our album manufacturer, and it appears I’m not the only photographer freaking out over it.  I have to admit, from the swatch, this is a REALLY hard leather to visualize as a cover.  In fact I really wasn’t sold on it at first, but Andy loved it immediately.  It took seeing a few examples online from other photographers to realize this was something we needed to add to our collection.   Once I unwrapped the box I was blown away. This will be a great addition to the studio.

I have no idea how they create this leather, but if I had to guess, I think they use some kind of giant die to score the pattern into the leather and then peel off sections to reveal this pattern.  The dark sections are the top layer of leather….the lighter brown background is the suede-like  layer underneath.   This treatment gives every book a unique appearance.  It looks aged and well loved.  It’s an instant heirloom.
