a disneyland photo book

The most magical place on Earth – Disneyland. You can see my 2011 photo book version here along with ideas for photos to include.

For our summer 2012 book, I continued to publish through Blurb in a 10 x 8 standard format style. For these yearly Disneyland vacation books, I try to make each a little different. In this book, I decided to stick with the primary colors which feel very Disney (think Mickey Mouse, Goofy, etc.) in swatches, large stripes and in frames around the photos using Blurb’s BookSmart layouts and editing software. I am making good use of the Kingdom font for headlines and Futura for the body of the text.
