Handprint Art Books... a handprint creation for every month

This would be a cherished gift! For all the art i don't want to toss...Plum Print will take your kids' paintings, doodles, and construction paper creations and turn it all into an absolutely gorgeous coffee table book from children's artwork. The company professionally digitizes as few as 20 pieces of art--or as many as 220--and arranges them onto high-quality paper. You provide a book title and, if you'd like, a photo of your child with a short caption.
