Albums – In this day and age of digital, traditional photo albums have taken a bit of a back seat to the computer screen. Nevertheless, in the spirit of the tangible, we believe photos are best enjoyed when presented in a more traditional means. Our selection of photo albums has been culled from vendors throughout the world. Whether you are looking for an album with a hand-tooled leather binding from Italy to house your family history, or a simple brag book to show off the newest addition of your family, our albums will lend a sense of warmth and preservation to your special pictures. We also offer a wide range of archival products to mount, store, repair, or exhibit your prints and photos. (see our brands)
Journals – We love paper, we love pens, and we love putting pen to paper. Our selection of journals is truly meant to inspire our clientele to put their thoughts, ideas, memories, sketches, and dreams on paper. Like many of our various specialty items throughout our store, our selection of journals is something to behold. From traditional leather journals with hand-marbled edges, to watercolor journals, to whimsical bright and colorful journals, we offer an outstanding selection. Many of our customers have become very brand savvy as well, and for them we carry Moleskine, Miquelrius, Clairefontaine and Rhodia, just to mention a few.
FLAX Photo Albums and Journals
The traditional book arts craft is alive and well at FLAX. Our resident book maker makes books on-site every Saturday. She assembles albums and journals with the inserts, book board, book cloth and chooses from the thousands of various papers we have in our Paper room, creating a one-of-a-kind piece that makes the perfect place to store your words or pictures. We have dozens of coordinating styles to choose from.
Albums range from 5″x7″ to 10″x14″ ($35 – $130), and Journals 2.5″x4″ to 8.5″x11″ ($10.95 – $29.95)
Come watch, learn and explore this centuries old craft.
