In search of the perfect baby book

For a week or so now, I have been in search of the perfect baby book.  It seems the popular choice right now is a traditional silk covered style, perhaps monogrammed.  Don't get me wrong, they are beautiful, and I love a monogram!  But I was hoping to find something more special, different from the way my bride's book looks.

It seems like a simple task, but let me tell is not!  Trying to find a baby book with vintage style and minimal cheesiness is no easy job.  Here are a few that struck my fancy.

I love this design by Binth.  It's modern but with hints of retro.  And I love the woodsy theme and shades of green.

For a more Victorian look, I love these books by Terra Traditions.  While some of their covers are a little over the top, I love the sweet, vintage images on the inside pages.

This memory book from Uncommon Goods also caught my eye, with it's hand-drawn style.

And then there is this little beauty.  Mother Stork's Baby Book  is originally from 1904, but has recently been reprinted!  How adorable does it look?

But my all-time favorite has to be this beauty from photographer Meg Fish.  If you haven't seen her work, I urge you to check out the link.  She is working from scratch, designing the entire book herself and then having it printed.  How is it that my favorite option always requires the most work.........??  And why I am seriously toying around with the idea of making my own baby book??  I must be crazy!
