I am dangerous in a bookstore. Really, really dangerous. I just LOVE books: the smell of leather, the heft of a properly bound book, and the joy of discovering something lovely in the stacks of an old bookstore.
Growing up, I loved to read biographies, and one of my favorite parts were the photographs and their attendant captions. Oh, the captions. It’s fascinating to me to see what the author or photographer chose to say about that image in just a few words. It’s like Twitter for books!
So traditional wedding albums, while lovely, always make me want to know more. I want to hear the story behind the images! Imagine my delight, then, to discover Good Stock. This lovely little company takes your story and turns it into a custom, handcrafted, keepsake book. Wedding story, family story, baby story…whatever your story is.
I’m especially smitten with their wedding and engagement story books. From the traditional…
(Aren’t you just in love with those sepia tones and hand-deckled edges?)
(Ah, captions. In this case, they included their wedding vows. How lovely is that?)
…to the unique…
(Moleskine-style binding to give the book a more journal-like feel. I love rounded edges!)
(dark blue trimmed leather = gorgeousness)
…to just pure fun!…
…Good Stock seems to be able to do it all. I think I might have just found an anniversary project!!
Which style is your favorite? What special words, memories, and keepsakes would you include?
