Whether your travels take you south of the border, across the pond, or to The Big Apple, Mixbook has three newly designed photo books that will preserve the memories beautifully for a lifetime. Each theme is created to complement the colors, subjects and images that are bound to turn up over and over again in your favorite photographs, for a cohesive overall composition that does justice to your great adventure. Little design elements are dotted throughout each new design to enhance the visual layout without overwhelming it. The result is a sophisticated, grown-up album that captures the color and atmosphere of the setting – so your memories stay crystal clear and close at hand for sharing and reminiscing.
Modern Europe Mixbook’s new Modern Europe design features a beautiful, clean design and a muted palette that complements the well-loved patina of Europe’s weathered brick, aged cobblestone, ancient columns and carved marble. Poignant quotes are offered in a variety of layouts, or you have the option to add the wise words you come across in your travels to further personalize your memory of the experience. Full bleed printing allows your images to stretch from edge to edge, doing justice to the dramatic sweeps of the city from atop famous monuments or a view of the skyline taken from a distance. Translucent scrims let you add captions over images without obscuring what’s beneath – a look that’s in keeping with chic European style.
Journey to Mexico Featuring some beautiful folk art and a vibrant palette, Mixbook’s new Journey to Mexico theme is alive with the rich culture of Mexico. Border details showcase the intricate cutwork of papel picado – the famous hand-cut Mexican tissue-paper banners used for celebrations. Backgrounds vary between layouts – from the saturated color and elaborate patterns of Talavera tile to the rustic warmth of terra cotta. A refreshing departure from the ubiquitous “taco-loco” typefaces associated with Mexican restaurant chains in the U.S., the Journey to Mexico photo book features a gorgeous typeface that honors the rich history of colonial Mexico – think Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, not talking chihuahuas. Meaningful quotes are dotted throughout the book, which you can incorporate or replace with words of your own. Full bleed layouts let you capture the breathtaking expanse of your favorite cityscape, beach expanse or mountain view.
NYC Everyone knows that there’s something about New York City that goes beyond words – even pictures. You have to go there to feel the vibe. But Mixbook’s newest NYC photo book theme goes a long way to capturing the energy of The Big Apple. Bus sign poster art, quotes by famous New Yorkers, jet-black backgrounds, subway signs, exposed brick backgrounds, city skylines, I <3 NY stickers and Broadway show posters are just some of the design elements that add dimension to the look and feel of your personalized photo book about your trip to Manhattan. You won’t find silly pizza or bagel stickers, so make sure you snap photos that feature friends and family members enjoying a slice and a schmear in the best hole-in-the-wall, off-the-beaten-path joints you can find. Your time in New York will be recorded in a volume that captures the true spirit of the city for a lifetime of great memories.
Happy travels! Happy Mixbooking!
