    These books also make very good gifts. Please pass this event along to your friends since you do not have to be a professional to learn how to make a good photo book.

    I find this class very interesting, but frankly, I don't know why. I do love taking photos; however, I am quite a novice.

      pro or novice - everyone can learn how to make a book on blurb- or other self-publishing sites. Also it is always interesting to learn how the market place operates weather it is your profession or not. it can be eye opening.
