Ready to create your own coffee-table book? Efotolab [2] has partnered with Blurb.com [3] to enable photographers to compose, publish, print and sell their own books.

Said Efotolab president Joel Plotkin [4]:

A wedding photographer … could offer prints of the event through our online photo lab and then quickly put together a commemorative book and sell that as well to the wedding party and guests…

This service works particularly well for photographers who are creating books for specific clients … Clients can view the book layout and design online in our system. After a client approves the work, the photographer presses one button …and the book is off to the printer. In 7 to 10 days, the book will be delivered.

Go here [5] to learn more about creating a book with Blurb.com (which you can do directly as well as through Efotolab).
