More details

Musée is French for museum, and it's been said that turning the pages of an album from EJP is like walking through the halls of an art museum, which is poignant especially since this album sets a new brand standard with Musée, based on exclusivity and museum conservation quality.

The museum metaphor is especially apt - because although a museum should possess its own serenity and beauty, it really exists for the exhibits, in this case the photography because both the album and the photography are both means to an end - telling a personal story to enjoy and share forever.

DESIGN

Musée take our products to even higher levels in terms of materials, design, artisan skills and exclusivity.

There is a huge selection of colours, materials, cover and page styles to choose from. The palette of colours, materials, decorative details is rich but defined, chosen to suit the Musée idea.

PAGES

There is no doubting the provenance of the Musée off-white card stock, which is 100% cotton watercolour paper from the French Arches ® mill. Arches is traditionally thought to date back to 1492. Arches: pronounced arsh.

Musée pages are matted with trimmed edges, similar to Duo albums, and can include the normal Duo design features such as apertures bled out to the page edge and split mats. Images are mounted on the pages in a distinctive Pagemount style.

Musée pages can also exclusively feature an enhancement of the Pagemount concept: multi-image apertures, in which multiple individually trimmed prints are presented in a single aperture.

COVER MATERIALS

Musée's fine leathers and vintage ribbon closures are of European origin. The distinctive wrap-around covers are a combination of embossed and plain vegetable tanned leathers in black or dark tan. French ribbon closures ornament the cover.

PERSONAL TOUCHES

Each book has a logo individually created for you using your first name initials.

The logo is embossed on both the album and its Solander Box, as well as all accessories.

We also include on request a specially printed and bound folio in matching Arches stock with the story of your day - as you supply it to us - or a love letter, reminiscence, history ... just as you wish.

COVER STYLES

All our albums except Portrait Albums and Musée offer the same cover materials and cover styles. This page assumes you've chosen a material, and explains how you can personalise it: whether with personal embossing, laser engraving, a cover motif, or with a photo front or wrap-around. For technical reasons we may not be able to offer every cover style option on the material and product you've chosen. Please read on for details.

PERSONAL EMBOSSING AND LASER ENGRAVING

We offer several embossing options:

• Standard Text Embossing (you supply the text)
• Custom Embossing (you supply the artwork)
• Companion Embossing (using an existing "custom" block)
• Studio Embossing (using your studio logo)

We custom design them for you — just select Designable Cover in Workspace and quote the style you'd like in Special Instructions. Upload the cover image with the filename “cover”. We will design the cover once the book is confirmed and paid for, and send you a proof to approve before it's printed. The new canvases replace our previous designable covers. For those designing in Photojunction, the design process is the same as before.

COVER MOTIFS

PHOTO FRONTS
