For a while now my mum has been looking for an easy way top get all her old recipies into a nice book. At the moment they are on rapidly disentigrating pieces of paper, and represent the state of the art in Kellerman household cooking. The loss of this invaluable repository of knowledge would have incalculable culinary impact. So you can imagine my relief when I came across blurb.com. This print on demmand service, fashionably still in beta, offers well designed templates and msot importantly an easy to use book creation tool for both PC's and Mac's. Downlaod the BookSmart application and create your book click the button and have it printed in a nice hardcover book from $29.95.
They currently have templates for cookbooks, photo books and the usual baby and animal stuff. I might one day be tempted to use their blog book, it rips all teh data from your blog and creates a book for you, mmmm paper blog backup possible the way of the future.
