CUSTOM BOOK MANUFACTURING
We prefer to restore your bibles original binding and refresh its time worn appearance. But a new leather cover on old familiar pages is a pleasure to hold in the hand, and smells great too!
All new bindings are genuine hide leathers only, usually pigskin and sometimes cowhide which come in a range of 50 dyed colors. Many leather grains are available; with ostrich and alligator texture being popular embossed finishes. Calfskin, kid leather, & sheepskin are requested by the connoisseur and for Hebrew Bibles. Kangaroo is expensive, but is fantastic to recreate those old intricate stamping designs. Imitation leather and fine linen cloth are available for our veggie friends.
The aroma and feel of genuine leather on a treasured book that you hold everyday, is a unique way to extend its life.
We’ll need to see your book to evaluate the work to be done. Stop by, or send us an email attachment from your camera phone. We’ll give you an itemized estimate of repair and options.
