The Original Fine Art Album

Simple, but beautifully handmade…

Simple, clean lines. We're proud to be square.

The square, in all of its simplicity and harmony, played a central role in Roman architecture and we see no reason to unsettle the equilibrium.

All of our albums come in square form
- either 12” x 12”, 10” x 10”, 8” x 8”, or 6” x 6” -
so we can bring balance to your images whether portrait or landscape.

There are some things we don't want you to notice...

Hand-bound and encased in fine materials, our albums open out flat with an almost invisible crease, so you can showcase your very best photographic art across two pages. We use pigment-based archival inks, so the crease will keep its discreet nature and, unlike silver halide, won’t discolour over time. And, we use non-yellowing archival glue to assemble our books. The quality remains the same as the first time it was opened...

Quality paper that lasts and lasts...

Our matte-finished fine art papers are truly worthy of their place inside our hand-made books. They are chosen to last a lifetime and have an impeccable, sustainable provenance. We offer three types. Art White is our wood-based 200 gsm paper and, by far, our most popular. It is a bright, white paper that reproduces a vivid spectrum of colours to deliver a punch.

Alternatively, Art Cotton is a 100 per cent, 220 gsm cotton rag with a gentle texture that gives razor-sharp definition but with a warmer hue. Creamier still is Gallery Cotton which has the same texture and base colour as Art Cotton but weighs in at 310gsm adding extra thickness to each page.

Because our papers are bonded back-to-back, our albums have a page-turn that feels just wonderful; flexible enough but durable for all that handling.

It's all in the detail...

The quality of our fine art printing is everything to us and we’re constantly working to improve consistency and clarity even further. Quite how we achieve such a stunning performance from our high-end printers is a secret we prefer to keep to ourselves.

However our pigment-based inks, of archival quality, go a long way towards helping us get it right. We utilise the latest High Dynamic Range (HDR) products developed by Epson to bring breath-taking sharpness and accuracy to your images. Great care is taken, too, to optimise our ICC colour profiles. You can trust us to handle the screen-to-prints journey of your work.
