Turn your travel photos into a coffee-table book you can cherish forever!
Garry Trinh (Blurb Sydney) and Dan Milnor (Blurb photographer at large) will teach you how to best use the Blurb publishing platform. They will cover topics such as utilizing more than one format, typography, the difference between a book and a magazine, themed books and how to best create a travel book.
Before the end of the class, you will get the chance to make your own personal travel book, beautiful enough to make all your family and friends jealous!
