|If you have a favorite book or series of books Custom Bound Books will bind (or re-bind) your book in beautiful leather. We prefer to use Nigerian goatskin, but can use calf, pig, or other leathers or exotic skins. Ribbon markers, headbands, matching hand-laid endpapers, gilt-stamping and other options are all characteristics to consider in the creation of your treasured book.
Prices vary with the book and the scope of the work, but generally range from $75 to $185 per book, depending on the type of leather, amount of gilt stamping, etc. A value for your beautiful collection--the result is exquisite!
Your custom bound book is finished in the leather of your choice and you may choose from a selection of hand-laid endpapers, ribbon markers, gilt stamping, spine treatment and other custom considerations.
Normally, your custom made book can be ready for you within 60 days of your order. You are free to select from whatever colors we may have on hand at the time or, if you wish a particular color leather, and/or style we do not have in stock, we can special order it for you within a reasonable time. Colors and styles of endpapers are quite varied. You can pick your own, or we can select a complementary endpaper for your new book.
Many of the items that go into constructing a book of this nature are unique.
For instance, some of the special treatments you might consider in the design of your book are:
blind embossing decorative stamping
rounded corners gilt page edges
