A very cool feature of Apple's Aperture is it's ability to create and order books right from within the application. You can easily design beautiful books and get them delivered to your home in multiple sizes in both hardcover and softcover.
Over the years, I've designed and ordered many and have always been very pleased with the results. However, I've always done medium and big books and had never ordered the small size. It just seemed way too small at only 8.9 x 6.7cm.
I'd always been intrigued though, so a few weeks ago I pulled the trigger and ordered a small Aperture book with photographs from the People of the Globe project.
It arrived a few days ago. My first impression was *wow, that is small*, but having flipped through it and shown it around to friends, I really like it. The quality is good. The paper is relatively thick and the photos look good. They're all black and white and they came out fairly neutral. It's not perfect, but it's good for a small pass around book.
I love that I can take it with me everywhere and show it around. When I meet people interested in being part of the project, it's nice to show them what it's all about. I've found it always gets them more excited to participate when they can hold the photographs in their hands.
