PQ Blackwell is launching Milkbooks.com, which makes high quality tailor made books.
After ten years of creating internationally bestselling books and working with award-winning photographers and luminaries such as Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu, New Zealand-based PQ Blackwell, the creator of MILK (Moments, Inspiration, Love and Kinship) has launched a unique website that will make it possible for anybody to create an exquisite tailor made book whether it be a life story, an elegant photo book or an ambitious art book or album.
Inspiration for the project came to PQ Blackwell’s founder, Geoﬀ Blackwell, when his father turned seventy. “To mark Dad’s special day, my family and I decided to make him a book that combined our favourite photographs of moments shared together, and then each of us—right down to the youngest grandchild—wrote him a message telling him how much we love him. It was a beautiful little book and giving it to him was one of the happiest moments of our lives.”
Blackwell have spent the last eighteen months creating a website that will enable ‘ordinary people to tell their extraordinary stories’ and to create what Blackwell believes will be ‘the world’s best tailor made books’.
Each book will use editorial and design frameworks to create an exquisitely produced object featuring designer fabric binding and high quality art paper, and will be accompanied by digital versions that allow people to add video in the telling of their stories.
