“Eric and Margie, I have seen mother’s bible and let me say that your work is outstanding!   The bible looks wonderful and we are so pleased with everything about it. The materials and the craftsmanship are world class and you could not have done a better job. And the way you incorporated the original cover into the new one looked great and helped it retain its sentimental value.  Your packaging for shipping was great too. Plus, I greatly appreciated you getting it done in time for Christmas.   If and when we ever need another book rebound you can be assured that we will certainly use your services again.   Thank you again for everything and we wish you & yours a very Merry Christmas!

“I received the Bibles in yesterday’s mail.  You do very good work!  That’s to say the least.   Thanks for restoring that little KJV, and the new cover on the ASV is simply amazing.  Yours isn’t a business, it’s a ministry.  God bless you guys.

“Thank you sooooooo much.  The Bible arrived yesterday and looks and feels wonderful.  Doug has one that needs to be done but we will have to recover from this re-cover first!!!!!!!  We really appreciate working with you folks.
Joyfully in Jesus,

“I received the bibles this week and they are beautiful! Thank you so much for all of your hard work on these! My wife and I are very happy! 🙂 I especially like how the deer skin bible turned out. Very nice! The calfskin leather looks great on the study bibles and my wifes old bible turned out perfect! Nice job on the end pages also! I will keep you in mind for future projects and recomend you to my friends.
Thank you so much and God Bless. 🙂

“Everyone at Leonard’s,
Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did restoring my late father’s Lord of the Rings paperbacks! They look wonderful, and now I can read them without fearing that they will rip apart in my hands. I took pictures of the original condition of the books, and the before-and-after is pretty amazing.
I have dedicated an entire bookshelf to those books and photos of my Dad and me… it is a meaningful way to honor his memory.
I will be recommending your services to anyone who needs a book or Bible repaired.

We received our bible.  Thank you, thank you.  My husband is so plesed with it.  It looks great.  My daddy would be so happy.  It was worth every dime!!!  We have a friend, I believe I had mentioned before, that is interested in restoring his bible.  I will forward the information you enclosed with our bible to him.  Thank you so much again.  I will be referring you to friends and family.
God bless!

Sincerely grateful,

I wanted to drop you an e-mail to let you know that I received my Cookbook Binder yesterday.
I was very happy and pleased with it. Please tell Eric thank you so much for me.
Hopefully I will get many years out of this one, as my original one I did retire.
If I need anymore work done I will no doubt have you folks take care of it for me.
God`s Many Blessings To Each of You,

“Friends, as I said in my phone message, the Bible/prayer book looks great!


It is so handsome, but better than that, I can use it now without worry.  I love it.
Thank you so much.
I am going to be sending along another possible project for you to evaluate.

“Eric & Margie,
Received my rebound Bible yesterday.  Oh oh oh, it’s so exquisitely BEAUTIFUL!!  Thank you so much for doing a gorgeous job on my valuable possession.  My husband had initially thought I was a little silly to rebind instead of purchasing a brand new Bible, but he’s not thinking that anymore, he’s lovingly running his hands over my rebound Bible and deciding that is exactly what he will be doing when his current Bible needs replacing.  Thank you for your high quality work.  We’ll definitely be back in touch with you again for repeat business.  God bless you!


“I received my excellently repaired Bible today. Thank you so much!  Let’s see if I can keep the dog and any other type of destruction away.

“Dear Eric & Crew,

I received my Bibles yesterday and I just wanted to tell you how very pleased I am with the job you did. They are magnificent and the goatskin is so soft. I will be showing these to all of my family and friends and letting them know where I had this done. I will be sending another Bible your way sometime this summer to have one rebound in your brown deerskin.

Thanks Again

God Bless

– Ed”



“Hi Margie,


I wanted to let you know that I received my Bible last week and I love it! I’m so glad that I upgraded the cover and I’m really happy with it. It is the perfect flexibility, texture, and general feel. For me, having a nice leather cover also makes it feel more Holy. I can really tell the difference between this leather and the bonded leather bibles in the bookstore. I also like how the cords on the binding give it a unique look that you don’t see in the bookstores either.

It has also inspired me to read the Bible more often because I haven’t read it all yet (especially the Old Testament!). I do have an excuse though, being a relatively new believer. Thank you again for being so helpful and accommodating. If ever I come across someone who needs a rebinding, I’ll point them in your direction.

Take care,


“I wanted to say thank you again.  I totally love my bible, it is amazing.  I am telling everyone about you and they see your work and are amazed.  What a blessing!

In Him,


Indianapolis, IN


“Hey Margie and Eric,
Just received the rebound Bible in the mail.  Thank you so much!  The quality is top-notch.  Didn’t really know what to expect with the deerskin, but the more I handle it, the more I’m impressed.  Very soft and flexible.  Thanks again!  Glad to have my copy of the Word back 🙂






“Dear Eric, I just received the bible you did for me.  I think it turned out great.  Thank you so much.  I will send you more in the future.  God bless and may the Lord be with us tomorrow as we preach and teach His wonderful word.



“His Bible arrived today.  You have “far exceeded expectations”.  I called my daughter and she is coming by the house after work to see it.  Ryan won’t be home until the weekend so we have wait to see his face when he opens his package.
I’ve shown the Bible to all my co-workers and several made copies of your enclosed brochure.  I hope to generate some more work for you.
thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!
“Hi, Margie, Eric, and all at Leonard’s;
What a beautiful job you did on Sailing for Beginners! It’s lovely to have it back in use, and to feel like we can actually turn the pages without risking catastrophe. Thank you SO much for rescuing our much-needed reference book for new crewfolks.
Wishing all of you plenty of love, light and laughter in all you do





“Dear Eric

We just received our Lambskin Bible that you had recovered for us.  It is GREAT!  We could not have asked for any better of a job and your prices are the best.  Thank you again for such a wonderful job and we will highly recommend your services to anybody.

Roger and Becky”





“OH MY OH MY, these are BEAUTIFUL!!
thank you so much.
i have already given you word of mouth advertising.
I cannot stop telling christian freinds about MY bibles that have been resurrected!!!
YEA!!! thanks


separator Eric, Margie, and the “restoration team” for doing such a great job on my Bible.  It really stands out, too – especially the cross on the cover (I’m sooo glad I had that added).  Everyone who has seen it (and remembers what it looked like before) has commented on how well of a job all of you did on it.  In fact, I have other people from my church who have asked me for your website, so that can contact you about their Bibles!!

Again, many thanks,



“Received the books Saturday.  How awesome!!

Everyone loved them, and have been showing them off.  My partial-hair hide is so uniquely beautiful!

The goat and deer leathers are beautiful and feel great and perform awesomely.

These will become keepsakes in our family.  thank you!






I received the ESV Thinline, black, matte, goatskin yesterday and am absolutely delighted with it!!! If possible, I like it even better than the deerskin!  I believe I’m going to have another done exactly like it for my wife, but in a different color, if possible. I’ll call you to discuss.

Sorry for such a late e-mail but sometimes the seeds of thought take a long time to ripen and sprout. Some months ago you rebound a dictionary given me by my long lost aunt and uncle. When I first received the dictionary my first response was, of course …”  Good job!”.  But I didn’t want to write, as is my custom, until I had something unique to say.  And yesterday in the “gloaming of the day”,  the book “spoke to me”. I saw it on my writing desk, standing alonside some other treasured volumes when I realized how beautiful it looked in the fading light – you really brought out the “genius”  – ie, individuality, of the volume. I gave it to you tattered and broken, you returned it to me with dignity and more. I the picked up the volume and going over it realized how much thought and respect went into preserving as much of the original work as you could and, as if the original bookbinders were alongside guiding you, brought it back to the womb and gave it new life.
Thank you, and –  “May God Bless You and Keep You In His care”
Sincerely yours – Richard C”




“Hey folks,

My New Testament arrived today. I love the way this leather feels in my hands; it is so soft and supple! You did a wonderful job repairing the pages and re-working the spine. I had my concerns about spending this much money having it repaired, but your workmanship is worth the cost. I anticipate I will be using this for years and years. I have always liked this size and format and was very disappointed to learn that it was no longer being published–all they have any more are the long, thin NT and Psalm format. Since you were able to re-work this that is no longer a problem. Now I have a NT that will stay open to any opening, but is also going to stay together. Thank you, you have a new fan!
