There’s even the Book Design Team, who will take on design du­ties for you. We opted for the down­load­able Bob De­signer soft­ware, and were pleased with its ex­ten­sive cus­tomi­sa­tion, and the book ar­rived quite quickly.

Opt­ing for 300gsm lus­tre pa­per with a lay-flat bind­ing adds £9 to the stan­dard hard­cover price, but you get pages that ooze qual­ity and are great for archival pur­poses. Print qual­ity doesn’t dis­ap­point, ei­ther, thanks to punchy colours and con­trast, as well as the best print res­o­lu­tion on test, with no vis­i­ble droplet pat­tern­ing. Even our de­mand­ing test chart was re­pro­duced al­most flaw­lessly.
