Bessenberg Bindery offers domestic cowhide and pigskin leather bindings. They are an alternative to traditional full leather fine bindings with imported calf or goatskin. The material used in these domestic leather bindings is genuine leather with a printed grain or other finish applied. It can be seen as a step up in quality, elegance, and durability from standard low cost bindings, but it is not a substitute for traditional leather bindings.
Our domestic leather bindings fill the gap in quality and price that lie between traditional leather and cloth or imitation leather bindings.
Prices vary depending on the size of the book, leather and other options elected, but generally lie between $50.00-$85.00. A significant discount is given for multiple copies.
