As usual, you Blurbarians are way ahead of the curve. It’s only been about a week since we started showing off books for professionals and wedding photo books on our website, and already our Bookstore is packed with some intriguing books in these categories.
Blurbarians are making Modern Bride look totally tame. A browse through the Bookstore finds couples sailing off into the sunset, brides lounging in scarlet gowns, and grooms sporting sneakers for a quick honeymoon getaway. Wedding crashers might decide to go international once they check out the henna and Tiger beer bridal parties in Singapore (see below) and surfside Hawaiian ceremonies.
Professional wedding photographers are making a big splash in our Bookstore too these days, but they’re not the only professionals with bookmaking talents. Last week we featured a waitress with some serious photography chops: this week a group of bookish busboys are stepping into the spotlight. Their book The Pink Palace shows what happens after the resort restaurant closes, and how to sleep it off on a Greek beach the next day.
But there’s more to Greek culture than hot guys serving hot spanakopita, as Hellas Dancers demonstrate with their book showcasing fancy footwork in dapper traditional attire. This is just one of many books in the Bookstore putting our Set Your Price option to work for a good cause: All proceeds from sales of the book support the dance troupe.
Got any wedding, professional, or fundraising book ideas of your own to share? Do tell.
