Whether it's a first Bible, a family heirloom or another cherished book, it deserves to be protected and preserved. Avoid the heartbreak of seeing your favorite collection of words falling apart by encasing it in a hand-crafted cover that will last for generations. Utilize the open space to include a meaningful custom design, or simply create a beautiful cover that will age gracefully. Any way you cut it, you'll have a cover that will grow to be an important part of the book itself.
Each cover is made using only full grain leather, and begins by creating a template specific to the book, and transferring it to leather. Each piece is then individually hand cut, and then carefully hand sewn in place using the incomparably strong and beautiful traditional saddle stitching technique. Edges are then hand burnished and polished to a natural sheen or layered with edge paint and heat treated for a smooth finish according to your preference. Finally the cover receives a coat of conditioner and is hand buffed before finding its way to you.
Even more so than other items, Bible and other book covers are an exceptionally individual and unique in production. The wide range of dimensions requires each cover to be measured in accordance with the size of the book. In some cases, older books require additional repair or rebinding. Due to the highly individual nature, it is difficult to estimate price until all the details are known. For simple covers, expect prices $100 and up. In order to give an accurate estimate, I ask you to please fill in the form below with as much detail as possible. I will be happy to work with you and discuss all available options to decide how to best meet your need. Thank you for taking the time to fill out this form. I look forward to working with you.
