PQ BLACKWELL LAUNCHES MILKBOOKS.COM
THE WORLD’S BEST 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 creators of MILK (Moments, Inspiration, Love & Kinship) is now set to launch a 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 70. “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.”
The experience made such an impact on Blackwell that he and his team of award-winning designers and editors have spent the last 18 months creating a state-of-the-art 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’. Exquisitely produced objects that feature designer fabric binding, art paper, multiple editorial and design frameworks and digital versions that allow people to add video to tell their stories.
“Milk Tailor Made Books is our most ambitious project yet but it is founded on a simple love for making beautiful books, and a belief that every life is precious, and every life has defining moments that are worth recording and celebrating,” says Blackwell.
MILKbooks.com has signed Florence Broadhurst as one of its designer fabric collections available for exclusive use in its books.
