Make Your Own Chi Chi Coffeetable Book at Couture Book. FASHIONTRIBES BLOG


Whether it's a wedding, baby's first steps, or the most fabulous fashion show, now you can capture it in a richly bound, handmade, luxurious book at Combining old-world binding techniques, the latest printing technology, the speed of the Internet, and good old-fashioned personal service, once you upload your photos & select your style of book from a number of customizable template options - or use their Concierge for even more customization - your one-of-a-kind book will be ready in around 15 business days. The result is hand-sewn, bound with French silk thread, and printed on hand-picked imported paper on the super high tech HP 5500 Indigo press. (Check out the process at

"We've employed old world binding and craftsmanship with a whole new world in high end digital printing and made it accessible to anyone," explains Rodrigo Coelho who co-founded Couture Book with photographer Phyllis Lane, who in turn notes: "Our passion has been to help people express the emotion of their photos through an elegant book that is so well crafted and designed  that it could be found in a library in Oxford or with a runway model during New York Fashion Week."

5% of the proceeds from every book purchased goes to charity from a list including The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation, American Forests, or Big Brothers Big Sisters of America Inc. "We know that consumers today like to feel as though they are making a contribution to a cause," says Lane. "We feel that our unique museum-quality books enrich individual's lives, and we believe in building a better world and enriching the lives of others by giving back to the community."
