Very lovely. Plenty of room to write names/descriptions of photos. Plenty of pockets to hold lots of pictures. Great value, since you get two albums for one price. Please be aware that, as stated by other reviewers, this is not a true navy blue. The blue is pretty, but if you need navy to fit in with a color scheme, this will not match.
I bought two of these albums. The feature I like most about them is that the plastic on the display pages is completely open so that you can put in pictures of either landscape or portrait orientation on any page. The size of the albums is not particularly large in terms of height and width, however, so you will need to stick to 4x6 photos for the most part. The cover is depicted and named as navy blue, but the color is actually more of a deep blue green, which is actually very lovely.

A photo album seems a simple thing: pages to hold pictures and an attractive, protective cover; but this item adds just a bit more to the mix. It is delightful for the viewer, the plastic sleeves being a bit less adherent than in many albums, its page designed with a margin that allows notes to be added, and the size being comfortable to handle. And, it is nice for the user in that the compartments just work better to allow insertion and rearrangement of pictures. The album comes with a protective plastic bookcover, which I found detracted from the appearance, but it is removabler, so, while I found it bothersome, it is an option others may prefer...another thoughtful extra from the designer. All in all, it's a comfortable and convenient display book. My one dissatisfaction is with Overstock', who does not carry a proper representation of the cover colors. Neither the navy, not the cranberry albums I bought were accurately shown, and might have been siappointing if they had to match a decor or specification.
The product was fine. Quality and silk covering were pretty but the color is more like teal blue than navy.

But I think that's my monitor's fault. I was expecting a much more "blue" shade of blue, when in fact, it's more a dark aqua color. It's still very pretty, but it's not quite the color I wanted. It's kind of a greenish lighter colored blue, and I was expecting more of a darker, true blue (almost but not quite navy). Hope the color descriptions helps since everyone's monitor is calibrated differently. The pages to hold the photos look good, there is a little space toward the binding of each page to write notes about particular pictures. In the back there is a page that can hold 2 cds and a set of negatives as well. It comes with a clear plastic cover to protect the fabric, but I don't know how well the stickers will come off of it, so I may not be able to use that part. Good product for the money, especially considering you get 2 photo albums. It's perfect for me because I have one for my parents and one for my in-laws.
