We work in both contemporary and traditional styles using morocco goat skins in a wide choice of colours. We also work with calf and have used more unusual skins such as deer, skate and salmon. Leather books are available in various styles, such as full, half and quarter bindings. To preserve your leather volumes we are happy to make you a protective box or slipcase. We offer a wide range of handmade marbled papers, both traditional and contemporary, for use as end papers or combined with leathers on half or quarter bindings.
