THE Artisan Album
AN HEIRLOOM ALBUM FOR THE GENERATIONS TO COME
We use our Canson Rag paper in our Artisan Albums. This Archival Matte Paper has a subtle texture to it that gives it a very tangible feel. It works very well for landscapes, details ,and portrait images. Like our other album offerings, The Artisan Album is made to the strictest archival standards right here in Nashville, TN.
EVERY CORNER AND FOLD IS CREATED BY HAND RESULTING IN PRECISION AND FINE DETAIL.
ALL MATERIALS WITHIN EVERY ALBUM FOLLOW STRICT ARCHIVAL STANDARDS MAXIMIZING PRINT LONGEVITY.
THE MATTED ALBUM
Soft. Simple. Luxurious.
The Matted Album is full of Museum Rag Mat Boards and showcases your work through simplicity. We honor the history of book making with our classic construction, our commitment to only the best archival materials and through our select fabric options from around the world.
THE MUSEUM CASE
Clamshells with multiple fabrics and handmade cotton rag paper.
The Museum Case is filled with subtle details and multiple materials that produce a museum quality enclosure for your matted photographs. The '4th Wall' of the Museum Case allows for easy access to the mats and provides superior protection against insects and dust throughout the decades.

A LOT OF ALBUM COMPANIES CLAIM THEIR ALBUMS ARE HANDCRAFTED, BUT THEY ARE ONLY PARTIALLY HANDMADE. THEY USE MACHINES TO DO A LOT OF THE WORK. OUR ALBUMS ARE GENUINELY HANDMADE BY BRITT HERE IN NASHVILLE, TN. EVERY CUT, FOLD, CORNER AND MEASUREMENT ARE DONE WITH THE HUMAN TOUCH. WE'VE BUILT ALL OUR ALBUMS ON THE CRAFT AND HISTORY OF BOOKMAKING.
