I always get people asking about flush mount albums, and if you haven't seen one before you probably don't understand what they're like.
Here are some examples of some awesome albums! The pages are designed by me and the pictures are printed on Fuji Crystal Archival paper and mounted right in the album (so it's not the type of album you stick 4x6's in).
The pages are sturdy (similar to a child's board book, but not as thick).
Here are a few more of the designed spreads.
