I have these albums in every single color that they come in. I just love them. I think that they look very classy and I think that they add to the decor in my living room, so I have no problem with leaving them out on my coffee table.
Since they are left out, that means that my kids flip through them, a lot. They have held up extremely well. I have had them for more than 2 years and there isn't the slightest sign of age. Love them.
On the recommendations from previous reviews, I ordered two of these dark brown albums....boy...was I pleased when I opened the package. Just like others had stated, they look very classy with the topstitching and I was impressed that they come with 20 protectors for under $22.00......awesome! I plan to order them in the black and red, too.
I was elated the moment I took it from its box. The stiching was perfect, and the closure was more than I imagined. The twenty pages of top loading protector sheets have been a blessing to work with. Its warm chocolate brown skin is soft to both the eyes and the hands. What more can I say...its perfect.
