Epson sells some books much like you describe that are commercially
available at least at camera stores.  Basically, they sell the pages and the
backing and you print them out on your Epson printer.

Also, HP was showing some Kiosks at PMA where you would upload your images
and they would print them and bind them in an hour or so.  Cost was rather
high at about 50K for the shop but I am sure that they are out there.

Last, check with a local art supply house for either cheap bindings that you
can place pages in or a local printer that would bind your images.  Whether
you printed them at home or had the local shop print you images on standard
sizes it shouldn't be real expensive for a soft cover.
