Blurb has launched in the UK. A creative book publishing service, popular in the States, Blurb lets you design your own professional quality books.

Using the drag-and-drop-type BookSmart software that you can download from the Blurb website for free, you can design your own Blurb book on whatever subject takes your fancy.

The BookSmart software offers a good variety of book layouts that you can use as templates. These layouts have been created by professional book designers.

The books are available as hard or softback and particularly lend themselves to publishing a collection of photos, whether it's a party pictures, a tome dedicated to you pet or something a bit more arty.

Blurb is celebrating its European launch by working with Flickr, to publish the commemorative
