Leather-Lined Goatskin Style

This is where you can choose the specifications for your own custom leather-lined Bible. This special style is our most flexible cover, with a handsome look and texture.

In 2022, when a few of our suppliers went out of business, we were scrambling to find new ones and we now have some great choices for you — a new line of very beautiful lambskin liners (with some new colors!) and a selection of high quality acid-free papers that are close color matches to the lambskins.

Also, since we started making this style, we have added two more goatskins as choices for the exterior of your Bible.  Besides the original River Grain goatskin, we also use Capra Grain goatskin and Sokoto goatskin.

For information about how we developed this style, see our article.

Standard Features

  • The outer leather is our special River Grain goatskin, or we can now use Sokoto goatskin or Capra grain goatskin.
  • It is lined on the inside with soft, smooth genuine lambskin.
  • The spine imprinting will say simply “Holy Bible” (or a short alternate title, such as “Santa Biblia”), in gold or silver to match the page edge gilding.  The Sokoto or Capra can be blind-stamped as well.
  • We can also add the version abbreviation to the spine. This will give the Bible a clean look.
  • At the bottom edge of the spine will be our Leonard’s logo stamp, to remind you where your great cover came from.

Style Limitations

  • The only customization options for this style are the ones listed.
  • At this time, we use only the River Grain, Sokoto, and Capra grain goatskins and the lambskin. Our other leathers are not interchangeable.
  • We do not use customers’ leathers for this style.
  • We can imprint a name on the front, and on the Sokoto or Capra grain, we can also do some blind-tooling.
  • We can leave off imprinting, change the number of ribbons, or leave off our name / logo if requested.
