Blurb and Flickr have partnered to make it even easier to create fantastic, bookstore-quality books from your Flickr sets and photo streams. As of today, all you Flickr folk can find us directly under the Do More section on Flickr. Go ahead and use the amazing Flickr Slurper to automatically import the high-resolution version of your sets or streams directly into Blurb books. You can make hardcover books (with custom dust jackets) and softcover books in multiple book sizes, starting with as few as 20 pages up to 440 pages. It’s all up to you. Prices start at just $12.95.
Below is a photo of the recently published 24 hours of Flickr book, which Flickr made to celebrate its global expansion. It’s a beautiful photo book with contributions from the Flickr community all over the world. Flickr will donate 1USD for each book sold to benefit Ḿedecins Sans Frontières – that’s Doctors Without Borders for the rest of us. The book is available for purchase in the Blurb Bookstore.
The Flickr folks are our kind of people. It’s hard to imagine another community more passionate about creating and sharing images. We love that, because that’s how we feel about making books.
To everyone on Flickr, you keep on taking photos. Blurb will give you the creative control to make, share, or sell the books you’ve dreamed about.
Get your book on, people.
