We’ve seen a lot of really great Instagram books in the Blurb Bookstore since we launched Instagram bookmaking on Tuesday. The books are unique and personal, owing much to Instagram’s hazy glow, as well as the iPhone’s ubiquity in life. Here’s a round up of some of our favorite Instagram Books:
HerrKrueger spends a lot of his time between home and work: after all, he works in Berlin, Germany, and lives in Istanbul, Turkey. His book illustrates what he calls his “lifestream between two cities and cultures.” It’s beautifully arranged, from airplane views to ground shots, to tell the story of a man on the move.
Kelly Symes wanted “a unique and original way to capture my home town of Marblehead, Massachusetts.” And she found it with Instagram. The photos in 148 grams: marblehead, ma capture a town out-of-time, lonely and full of beauty (and that cover just begs to be opened).
Eric Nahon’s InstaShots 2011 brings us into the life of a family through gorgeous sun-filled shots of faces and buildings. The photos are both personal and universal, taking us through the people, scenes, and environments that make a life.
There are many more to be found in our online bookstore, and even more being published as you read this post. We’d like to see your Instagram book as well. Put a link to your Instagram book in the comments and show off your instant world.
