"Speaking of PhotoBook Press, our book the Eloquence of Trees is an incredibly beautiful presentation of Craig's work due in no small part to the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship of PhotoBook. We have seen books by Blurb, Apple's iPhoto and others and they simply don't compare. If you're looking to create a beautiful photography book of your images that when opening gives the viewer an OMG moment, these are definitely the folks you need to talk to."

"You have done a great job, I am very satisfied about the quality of the printing and bindings. I appreciate your work and I will come to you every time I need a very good quality book."
This was my second time ordering, everything turned out great. Thanks for the quick turnaround and all your help.
I received my book today and it's absolutely stunning. The quality of the materials and the printing of the photographs are both marvelous. I love your attention to detail that makes all the difference to those of us who notice such things!
Many thanks and I look forward to our next project,
The whole Photobook Press experience was very positive. Although there are many faster and cheaper photo book services out there, I have not found any service that begins to compare to yours in terms of quality, software ease of use, and personal attention.

"Your books are great! My clients love them, they generate a ton of interest. Once my galleries get that book in their hands, they finally see my work. I might as well scrap the website. I'm not kidding. I sent out 5 books, and already heard back from three galleries wanting seven more pieces. I hit the trifecta with Photo Book Press; quality that I demand, price within my budget, and a wonderful group of people to work with."
The 10 copies of my family book arrived today in perfect condition and looking wonderful. They turned out beautifully, thanks to you, and at a very fair price too. The attention to detail and the construction quality of your books is outstanding.
