We've told some of the greatest stories of all time.
And we can't wait to help tell yours. We created M.I.L.K. (Moments of Inspiration, Love and Kinship) to celebrate what it is to be part of a family, to have friendship and, more than anything else, to be loved. The original M.I.L.K. series of photographic books sold over four million copies around the world. Our founders have also been trusted with creating beautiful books for some of the world's leading figures. We've published official biographies of Princess Diana, Nelson Mandela and Bishop Tutu. Today, we bring the same attention and care to your own personal photo books and albums.
You can create MILK Photo Books & Albums via our website on both desktop and mobile device. Simply upload your photos into the MILK Design Studio to start creating online. Our Design Studio is purpose-built for easy photo book creation. With 1000s of designer templates, a smart Autofill function and an intuitive interface, creating a custom photo book or album has never been easier. Watch our helpful video tutorials to optimize your design experience.
MILK Photo Books and Albums are digitally printed using the latest printing technology and top quality inks. Your photos are recreated in vivid color using liquid ink on archival quality paper. The ink binds itself to the paper, rather than sitting on top, as is the case with less sophisticated printers. Handcrafted by expert bookmakers using traditional binding techniques, we combine the best of old and new world craft when creating your mementos. For more details on our printing process, visit this page.
Our Premium Photo Books are our most popular photo books and the Large Landscape is our bestselling format. This is closely followed by our Classic Medium Landscape Photo Book. All of our Photo Books are printed on sustainable, archival quality paper. They are also traditionally made and handcrafted. Visit the Compare our Range page to discover which is best for you.

We love seeing the beautiful projects they create and each month we choose our favorite as the winner of our Book of the Month competition.
