Custom Moleskine Milk Photobooks Update

“Some day, my people are going to come up with some sort of a doctrine, something that tells us what we can and can’t do out here, should and shouldn’t do. But until somebody tells me that they have drafted that directive, I’m going to have to remind myself that we didn’t come out here to play god.”
Archer, thinking about his behavior towards a technological inferior alien race, in “Enterprise”

A long time ago I wrote a posting about MILK books. This company offers to create custom photo books in the Moleskine notebook style. As described in this posting, I cheated a little with their option to customize books and used InDesign to create a custom notebook and exported full page images of the notebook I wanted. It bypassed the design options and gave me a bit more freedom to create a nice notebook.

I mentioned in that posting that I write an update when the notebook arrived, but I haven’t done so far. So here it is.

Let’s just say — I’m impressed. It really looks nice and the quality is … well, industrial standard. Without a flaw. The only problem is that some images look as if they are covered with varnish, but that’s my fault. I guess I made a mistake when exporting the images.

But the overall quality — it’s great.

So, if you are interested in custom books, I strongly recommend having a look at the Moleskine option of MILK books.


P.S.: Of course, in the meantime I have updated that notebook I created a couple of times. Once I think it’s fairly stable I’ll probably order a new one.
