Handmade leather book covers for protecting a book or for to bind your own book.
Up to today we have made two sorts of book covers.
Book covers for binding your own book
These covers are ment for your own creation – be it your stories, poems, drawings, diary or a family history. Covers are made with leather straps or metal clamps and you can add pages as you like. For example you could bind in there thinner paper sheets for writing and a bit thicker carton for photos.
Leather covers to protect book covers
Other sorts of book covers are ment for protecting the book. This is very useful if you like to read a lot and you’re often carrying a book with you. This could damage the original book covers. So to keep the book safe, you could have one pair of these leather covers and you can switch them later onto the next story book.
Making book covers
We offer hand carved images for decoration. It could be almost anything you can think of – an image, a sign, name(s), a writing. And we have many beautiful colors to choose from.
You will decide in what size your new covers will be made in.
For a book covers protection we suggest to choose a larger size as there are books in varios sizes and this way you can use the covers on different books. It is also possible to make the sorts of covers that can be turned back from the back cover side so they will be very adjustable at least in this way. the turned back part can also be used as a bookmark.
Covers for your own book could be made in any size you like. You can decide by the paper size you can get your hands on, it could be any standard size (like A, A5, A6 etc), it could be rectangle, trigonal, very long and narrow or very large. If you already have something you want to bind, then you can decide by the largest sheet.
Additions for covers
For the protective covers the pencil holder wouldn’t be necessary probably but the bookmark (or several) could be useful.
For your own book the pencil holder could be in a right place – if it is a kind of journal for examlpe.
For both kinds of covers you may want to close them up with a strap or a snap.
