Elegant Handmade Book, Case-Bound, In Wood And Black Leather.

For the writer, or the doodler, in you -- or someone you know. This book is bound with a hand-sewn traditional Smyth-sewn binding: a stack of 9 plain booklets, 32 pages each, snugly sewn together to make a 256-page book. The binding is sewn on linen bands, reinforced with a linen spine cloth ("super"). The book is wrapped around the spine with black calfskin, with decorative raised bands. The boards are fine-grained thin plywood. The edges and corners of the wood have been sanded and slightly rounded. The wood has been stained but not varnished, because I like the feel of the bare wood. This book is a delight to look at, and to feel in your hands, and will be a delight to use.

This book, as listed, is MADE TO ORDER, and will ship the third business day after you order it. I ship USPS Priority Mail, and if the recipient is in the continental US, the books I ship usually reach their destinations in two to three days after ship day. The book you receive will look a little different from the book pictured here, due to natural variations in the wood and leather.

SHIPPING: I ship via USPS Priority Mail, which gets things anywhere in the US in typically two to four days. International orders typically take a week to ten days to reach their destination. This book will be shipped wrapped in brown paper, sandwiched between two pieces of stiff cardboard, inside a padded envelope.
