Bible Rebinds | Simple and Timeless
I have traveled the nation in healthcare for over 22 years. In 2001 the Lord so very graciously saved me. Since that time, I have always had a Bible with me, and they see a hard usage as well. In modern day Bible/book construction, generally speaking, I am amazed at just how poorly the spines are constructed. I hope to alleviate this by offering high quality, hand tooled, cost-effective Bible rebinding. Since I do much of this work while traveling on the road, I do not emboss, imprint, gold leaf, nor elaborate custom work. If you are looking for something more detailed than what I can offer, I would be happy to refer you to a handful of highly skilled Bible craftsmen. If you are interested in learning to rebind, I encourage you to check out Diego Caloca’s book.
What will your Bible generally include?
- A high quality, hand made, leather cover with raised spines
- An Oxford hollow made from buckram book cloth
