For Large Bibles
Here’s a list of Bible rebinding possibilities, in stronger leathers suitable for large Bibles (usually anything over 9″ X 6″), and even for totally rebinding of some family Bibles. (Not the same price!) All rebinding jobs come complete with raised ribs and “Holy Bible” on the spine or face (if the material can be imprinted), one ribbon marker, and new leatherette end pages.
These prices are assuming your Bible has an intact sewn binding. If the pages are falling out or the binding is glued, we would need to repair that with cord insertion ($22.00). Can’t tell? See our blog post.
Thick, simple, tight grained leather with good flexibility. This leather is strong enough to hold up well under the weight of a heavy study Bible, but isn’t stiff so that it won’t open and lie flat. These pebble grain cowhides come in 18 colors, including black, brown, tan, red, dark red, maroon, navy, and forest (pictured).
We also have some even thicker cowhides, for your very large Bible. Here is the chocolate.
And here are three more colors of that same thick pebble grain cowhide, but with a very cool bomber jacket look: Camel, Cherry, and Hazelnut Bomber Cowhide:
Then there are the alligator-embossed cowhides. They’re great for a larger Bible! This one is the hornback style:
Hand-Dyed English Calfskin
This is a high quality English calfskin, smooth and sturdy, a great way to dress up your large Bible. Choose between medium brown, dark brown (below), tan, saddle tan (left), or mahogany.
Hand-Dyed Rustic Goatskin
Non-wimpy leather for a large Bible. Takes intricate tooling well and has lots of great folds and wrinkles to help you handle that heavy Bible. It is not a soft leather, but it feels great in your hand. (It’s real!)
Sokoto Goatskin is a great leather for a large Bible — not too floppy, but with a great soft feel. It has a beautiful wild grain and comes in some great colors including black, crimson, red, mocha, brown, and gray.
Drum-stuffed, hand-dyed, antiqued leather made from government-culled imported Australian kangaroos. This is a firmer leather, but is easy to tool and stamp and very nice on a study Bible. It has a wonderful smooth grain and leather smell.
Note: Kangaroo and Sokoto goatskin need to be special-ordered and paid in advance, but we’ll walk you through that part.
