How many pages are included in the album?
- 15 spreads which equals to 30 pages. The pages are creased down the centre ensuring a lay flat design that provides an uninterrupted view of each album spread. You are welcome to add more spreads/pages. The handcrafted Boutique Books are all printed locally in Brunswick on fine art, archival paper.
