    Hard Cover Photo book publisher?

    I have recently teamed with an interior designer. I made a series of interior photos, and the client wants a hard bound book. The images are 3/2 (35mm) format, 10" wide uncropped. I initally printed these on 8.5"x11"" paper, and want to keep this uncropped format in an 8.5"x11" book. Can anyone suggest a good company with "useable" software? I did down load from a vendor, and their software insists on full bleed 8.5"x11", and my photos are all cropped, sometimes leaving inportant features out. I realize there will be empty white page space to handle the 10"x6.7" images.
    Thanks in advance

    Try Blurb. They just came out with a pro series of papers/endpages and cover linen.

    You can use their booksmart software, upload from Lightroom, or create a template in InDesegn. Check out their sizes and see if it works for you.

    Has Blurb upgraded their print quality since I tried them three years ago?

    I don't know how long ago you've used them but I've seen a lot of good books from them. Best I can say is try with an inexpensive book or a proof copy of what you want.

    I made several hard cover Blurb and was happy with them. They have a very wide range of sizes of pages / cover haven't although I checked to see if your desired size is one. They certainly don't? They insists on full-page itself.
