Beautiful Custom Leather Bindings Made for You in the Ancient Spirit
As a collector of old books, I fell in love with the beautiful leather bindings of years gone by, and have created custom leather books on this site to remind you of them. Over the years I've evolved a distinctive old world style using interesting materials like distressed "pull-up" leather and salvaged remnants of ancient books. The result is our six styles seen on our BIBLES, BLANK BOOKS AND, and CUSTOM BOOKS.
Your book can be personalized with your unique choice of additional detail including adding your name, fragments of 140-year-old Bibles, "jewels" or leather bookmarks.
I love to make custom books. When we collaborate on a unique design, we start with a sheaf of papers or an actual book, and end up with a leather book that looks and feels like an old-world heirloom that is uniquely yours. Some of these can be seen on our "Unusual Work" page.

Pull-up leather is very hard to come by, and the shade of brown varies from dye lot to dye lot. This is generally what it looks like: SEE PULL-UP LEATHER HERE.
