MILK Softcover Photo Books

Introducing our gorgeous new format: Softcover Photo Books

At MILK, we're masters of the photo book. Handcrafted using age-old techniques and the finest materials, we've spent years carefully curating our dedicated hardcover range. We wouldn't depart this tradition for any old softcover. To be worthy of your moments, we knew that our Softcover Photo Book would have to be exceptional; flexible yet strong, elegant yet fun, affordable yet luxurious. After years of research, development and fine-tuning, we've created a softcover format that we're proud to add to our range. Put simply, we've perfected a classic. Introducing our gorgeous new format: Softcover Photo Books.​

What makes our Softcovers stand above the competition is the ability to print your most-loved moments on the outside and inside covers. Our range of designer templates allow you to start telling your story beautifully before you get to the first page.

For your outside cover: Showcase a sprawling front-to-back panoramic image or a selection of your favorite frames. Add text to the folds or choose to extend your photos further. Our design templates offer the option to add up to 4 images and your choice of text. 

For your inside covers: We've kept it simple with the only a single full-bleed image template available for your front and back cover. Watch your favorite moments unfold end to end and to powerful effect. Or if you'd prefer to go truly minimal, we offer the option to print a solid color from our palette of 12.

Contemporary design fit for every occasion

Eight Softcover Photo Books showing a variety of designer template options

We call this format "zine-style" because its polished card cover and fine art paper pages remind us of a modern magazine. And like a modern magazine, a Softcover will elevate any coffee table and shelf they grace. They're collectable, fun and versatile making them the go-to format to showcase any story. Perfect for your wedding moments, travel adventures, family photos and everything in between. 

Made with archival and sustainable materials
