One of the really great things about working with Artisan Craftsman Books is page design. If you are already designing your own books and album pages, you know how time-consuming the creative process can be!
We have specialized in designing award-winning pages with photographers’ images for over 15 years! In fact, owner Larry Crandall invented one of the first software applications for album design, and has been a platform speaker at WPPI on the same subject.
