I want to create a book of family history with mainly text with some photos.  I want to be able to have it printed as a book later.


Can I use ibook author to do so?

Can I use Pages to do so?


What is the best way to proceed?


Any ideas are welcome.

    You can use either app to do that.  You will probably have to export the result to pdf format for printing, and then find a service to print it for you (google "self publishing").  Apple is not involved in printing such books.

    Perhaps a photo book with captions via iPhoto would be better suited ove iBA, as it provides a direct service for printing and the results are terrific.
