America At Home

Thursday, June 5, 2008 10:35 AM

A few months back, you might've caught a promo link on Picasa Web Albums encouraging folks to participate in America At Home -- a project that asked amateur and professional photographers to try and capture the many meanings of 'Home' across the USA. As you might expect, the range of emotions and experiences associated with home and family life is a fantastic (and fascinating) subject for a collaborative photography book.

If you're interested in seeing the results, the America At Home book is out now, and you can flip through sample pages online. Cooler still, you can create a custom cover for your own copy of the book (and maybe make it a personalized Father's Day gift, even). The America At Home team implemented the Picasa Web Albums API, so it's easy to use any photo that you've uploaded to Picasa Web Albums as a custom cover. For more info, visit the America At Home website.
