Coveting: Giant Archival Albums

Coveting: Giant Archival Albums

Did your grandparents have those gigantic albums, the kind that you could fit a full newspaper page?

I’m considering one of those for our wedding album. We have so many photos and cards and scraps of paper from the wedding. I’m thinking a hodge podge on each page might be a fun way to share our story. I would also make a “cheat” book with just a few of our favorite shots for people who don’t want to see the whole shebang.

I haven’t been able to find one yet that is book-bound instead of posts. This one is a little too big probably.

    Light Impressions ( is a good source for things like this. Good luck, I think it’s a great idea!

    I agree, that catalog used to have the best albums with black paper pages!

    Have you seen Martha’s at Michael’s? I could not imagine lifting it once full….it’s not online, but it literally comes up past my knees! (I’m short, but still…)

    Check out Aspinal of London! I did our wedding album using their linen book cloth album. I also used the smaller ones for parents albums and transferred the image from our programs onto the cover.
