Our basic sewn binding book has a rich black bonded leather binding with black, white or ecru end leaves.
We also offer luxurious full grain or goat leathers, Japanese silks or photographic wrap bindings for the exterior of the book.
And just inside, we can put exquisite Nepalese cloud papers or custom printed end papers.

Page Layouts

custom page layouts - do it yourself or use professional design services

Each book we produce is unique, but can be described in terms of two basic styles – Classic and Magazine.

A Classic layout is the one preferred by professional photographers who want their photography to work hard. Like fine art books, this style has one or two images per page with white space on each page. [...]

Accessories, Slip Cases & Clamshells

dust jackets, book wraps, slip cases, and clam shell accessories

Slip cases and clamshells enhance the presentation, and provide the perfect long term protection for these heirloom books.

Foil Stamping

personalize books with custom foil stamped titles and logos

The title of your book can be stamped on leather or fabric book covers. Choose gold, silver or blind deboss, block or script letters, centered or offset – a stamp is the final touch that personalizes your book.
Custom dies for logos or special fonts can be made or we can set text to stamp.
Titles can also be stamped on the spine.
