A couple of years ago, my friend Sam started Echo Memoirs. It's a unique idea, and I think it's pretty nifty. It's related (I think) to the blogosphere explosion of the past few years.
They produce high-end (like, starting at CAN $850 high-end) memoir books. The most common varieties are pet books, wedding books and personal life stories. I recently suggested she also do car books. Many people love their cars as they do their children and pets, after all.
The appeal is all about archiving your own life and experiences. Plus, they're gorgeous, well-designed, hand-bound books. I've done some editing and proofreading work for her, and it's kind of fascinating to read (and edit) peoples' life stories.
Yes, I'm a dosser. With her permission, I lifted her site design for my site. .
