Self-Published Marriage Proposal

Valentine’s Day is a time in which many couples get engaged. If you are looking for a creative way to pop the question, maybe you should consider making a book.

One romantic guy named Travis Hines self-published a book to ask for his girlfriend’s hand in marriage. The book told their personal story and he gave it to her as a gift out on a date.

He explains how he came up with the content for the book on the Blurb blog: “I spent a couple weeks digging up every picture we had taken while together over the past three years – rummaging through our cell phones, old computers, Facebook and Twitter accounts. I had over 500 pictures to work with and I managed to design a chronological, full-page photo book capturing many of the wonderful moments where we were together.”
