We customize and produce every bible cover when it is ordered and our specialty is working with clients to personalize it.
This listing is a beautiful Victorian era design with illuminated calligraphy and the Charles Dickens quote. We take a lot of care in adding the color embellishments by hand. We can also customize with the family name and established date on the spine. Most books these days use a very thin "bonded" leather which basically means it is made much like paper, in that the leather fibers are mixed with "bonding" agents and reformed to give it a leather look. We use just real through and through vegetable tanned leather. Every hide is a little different. We are always cutting around brands and scars to get the smooth finish you see on our bibles but every one has its subtle differences with small scars and slight variations of color and grain. This gives the interior text block a great protection for generations of use. A wonderful treasure for any family starting or established.
