I've searched far and wide for a high quality leather album with a clean, flat spine that looks nice on shelves. This album fits the bill. I still wish it were a post album, but this is a great option with a classic appearance. Shipping was slow and cost $15 for a $19 lightweight album which I thought was excessive.
I like the D-ring styles so much better then the post bound style. I find those post to be a pain, but this is so easy! The refill pages are readily available and affordable.
