They may not be one-hundred-percent DIY, but websites like Blurb have made publishing more accessible. The site allows you to download a free template, add photos and text, and pay to have your book "published" and bound into a glossy volume. The concept takes zines to the next level. No late-night stapling sessions required.
Pricing is based on the number of pages and the type of binding you want. Shipping charges apply as well.
To make a book:
• Download the software (for Mac or PC).
• Choose your template.
• Add photos, text and content.
• Place an order for your book.
• Wait about 2 weeks for printing and shipping.
You can also put your book up for sale in the Blurb Bookstore. We had fun browsing for cool titles including:
