For Small Bibles

Here’s a list of Bible rebinding possibilities in leathers suitable for small Bibles (under 5″ X 7″), softer leathers that aren’t going to fold up on you while you’re reading. 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.

When you know what you’d like, just proceed to our ordering page. If you can’t decide, give us a call or write.

Black soft-tanned goatskin -- even a small Bible will open flat in it.

Soft-tanned goatskin

This leather is great for even the smallest pocket Bible, very flexible but still durable.  This leather comes in black, deep red, chocolate, and other bright colors, in a weight suitable for your small Bible.

There’s also a thicker one in a glossy chocolate, still good for a smaller Bible


Even a smaller Bible will open well with glossy chocolate soft-tanned goatskin.

Here’s a soft-tanned goatskin hand-dyed to a deep mahogany.  It looks great on this compact Bible, along with optional prominent wrap-around raised ribs and is still very soft and flexible.  (Regular raised ribs are default and no extra charge.)

This leather is flexible enough that it can be used on a small Bible as well as a larger one.  It would be great on a pocket Bible meant for a back pocket, since it wears so well but won’t wear out your pocket.  See the colors here.


Here are two other little Bibles you may also find interesting.  While generally, we’d recommend a softer, more flexible leather for a small personal Bible, there’s still room for a hardcover.  Many years ago, all the Bibles were hardcovers, even the smallest of the small.  The first picture is of a personal Bible rebound in an English calfskin for a period look and the second one (the little one on top) is what used to be called a “thumb Bible.”

Years ago, all the Bibles were hardcovers.
