These books were definitely a labour of love for me. Each book was a project I took on free of charge, just for the love of it really. I learned so much in both cases, and I enjoyed putting all the pieces together. My family history book was a lot of research and scanning and photo retouching, with well over 700 historical pictures. The cookbook, created for a friend of mine was also a special treat, as she paid me well in excellent cooking. Both books were created in InDesign, and they were printed with Lulu, print on demand.
