PRESS RELEASE: AsukaBook Launches Three New Products at PhotoPlus Expo in New York City
New York, NY - PhotoPlus Expo Booth #554 (October 18, 2007) - AsukaBook USA, a division of Kubota Image Tools, introduces today three new products at the PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo 2007.

Book Bound LX

A timeless look with beautiful simplicity, this cover option is available with selected sizes of the company's books, and with either Varnish or Laminate page finishes. Text embossing is available on the cover in a classic font with hot stamping. AsukaBook uses all natural hides so some slight variations in the textures and color may occur - lending to the uniqueness and authenticity of the product. Prices for the Book Bound LX line range from $292 - $432.
Book Bound FLX
For photographer's who prefer to offer their clients an "Animal Friendly" product, while still providing the look and feel of fine leather, AsukaBook's Book Bound FLX line is the perfect option. This faux "leather" has a natural leather feel to it and it is very consistent in look from order to order. Prices for the Book Bound FLX line range from $172 - $312.
Book Bound EX in Varnish
Now available in Varnish, the affordable EX books offer photographers the highest in quality, color management, paper and finishes in a Coffee Table Style Book. The AsukaBook Book Bound EX line is unique in that it offers a beautiful book jacket with the same design on the jacket as on the cover. Also available with inside laminate pages with the option of a matte or glossy finish, the EX line fits in a high gloss red or black case with personalized hot stamping on the front.
