Fine Leather Bookbinding

Book lovers appreciate the feel, the look and the smell of finely bound leather books. While we often bind books from scratch, sewing page signatures by hand, we can also rebind customers' favorite books, that may not have been originally bound in leather. We are proud of our workmanship and only use the finest quality materials when binding our books. We use goat and calfskin, handmade papers and 24K gold leaf, and we offer a wide selection of marbled papers and have hundreds of antique decorative gilding tools to choose from. For the book edges, we can gild, color, speckle, or just leave them plain or deckled. And, we can hand-sew silk endbands and add ribbon markers in various colors. We would be happy to advise you of the best choices for the period of your book and your budget.
