All about the Book Module and Blurb
The easiest way to get started with Lightroom’s Book module is to create a simple photo book, letting Lightroom do most of the work for you so you don’t get bogged down in the extensive design process involved in making a more complex book.

As you design your book, each image is placed on a page with a great deal of thought. Will it be on its own, will there be an image on the facing page, or is text needed to help explain the images? Should the image fill the entire page? If not, how big should it be? Should the image be cropped to fit the page design a little better, and if so, how does that change the meaning of the image? The process of putting images on a series of sequential pages also requires you to think of the sequence and the cadence of the images or the story being told. This process of self-publishing is one of the most productive things a photographer can do to improve their photography.

Lightroom Classic’s Book Module has Blurb built-in. It is very simple to use and you can design a book with completely RAW images. This means that once the book is designed, one can edit any of the images right in Lightroom and they will be automatically updated in the book design.   Lightroom Classic is an extremely convenient and efficient tool for designing books. It does have two shortcomings. First, it is not so simple to work with Text in Lightroom’s Book Module and there are limited paper and products available. But if the  paper and products available suit your project , and your book design has limited amounts of text, it is the most efficient way to design a book and if you have a monthly subscription already there is no further cost until you come to print.
