The 7x5 White Minimax Elegance album has a hard protective cover and is part of a much larger range, which boasts larger slip in style albums, as well as the more traditional style. This one is great for displaying up to 100 7x5 photographs in clear, plastic slip in pockets and measures approximately 7.5 x 6 inches overall, so ideal for carrying around in a pocket or bag. The photos are slipped into the album from the top of the pocket in portrait mode and the black plastic divider in each pocket, keeps the photographs from sticking together. The album will look great on a bookcase, with the other three colours in the range, as the spine measures just over 2 inches across, so makes a real statement. The hard, off-white ribbed cover offers excellent protection to the photographs inside as well as giving a lovely textured finish to the album overall and has the word 'Photo' is etched in silver onto the matt black background in the small aperture on the front of the album approximately two thirds up. It is recessed for added impact. Manufactured to a really high standard, the finish on this album is excellent.
