AQOE x BLURB

We made a book!


When Blurb approached us to create a publication about A Question of Eagles, we were so excited!!! For a while now we have been wanting to create an affordable catalog to take to trade fairs, give to clients, and just generally be a fun showcase for our range of work. We wanted something high quality, but not too fussy and easy to make using our own in-house photography. Blurb totally fit the bill!

In case you’re not familiar with them, Blurb is an independent, creative publishing platform that allows you to self-publish your own content. We loved how they really cater to creatives and offer easy free tools full of templates, so it was super fun designing the pages. We ordered a swatch kit first so we could see and touch all the paper options in person. Ultimately, we decided to make a soft-cover trade book using matte, uncoated paper. In making our ceramics we strive for our pieces to have a rustic modern feel, so the raw paper and more casual nature of a soft-covered book really spoke to us. We chose to use their own publishing tool BookWright, and after downloading it, it was very intuitive to use, and we were able to make the book quite quickly. Actually, the hardest part was deciding what images we wanted to include!

When it arrived we were so blown away by how professional our book looked, and now we can't wait to share it at our fall events. We were especially happy with the paper stock we chose. The matte paper aesthetically worked so well with our images, and gave the book a vintage vibe. Since images of our work almost always live in the digital realm, it feels good to have them finally in print form and in a sweet little book format that we can easily share. We should have done this a long time ago!

Hope you enjoy peeking into our process, and consider making a book of your own! We’re already thinking of a few new projects. And if you have ever made a book let us know! We’re still new to this and would love to hear about your experience or any tips you might have.

The Coast

On our way home to LA from West Coast Craft in SF, we treated ourselves to a trip down Hwy 1 instead of gunning it back quickly via the I-5. So happy that we did! This spring into summer has been incredibly busy for us (so grateful for that!), we haven't had much time for short trips outside of the city (or our neighborhood!) in months. It felt amazing to recharge and connect with nature again. New imperative - take more trips!!!
