ABOUTUP

Basic and Custom made-to-order Alcoholics Anonymous² Leather Big Book¹. Covers for your Big Book and other AA literature.

All covers are handmade from various types of leather. They are sewn with bonded polyester #207 thread or laced with black vegetable tanned cow hide.

These leathers are not the "t h i n" leathers found in commercially produced covers nor are they "bonded" leathers. The covers are a "slip-on" design, much like the old way we used to cover our school books with cut up paper grocery bags. Most of the covers are chrome tanned cow hide in many colors and are smooth grained, pebble grained or have embossed finishes (Alligator, Ostrich, etc.).

Leather is a natural product and may have some defects (e.g. range markings: healed scars, bug bites, brands, etc.). Those marking are natural in real leather. None of the leather is bonded leather. Most covers have an applique made from vegetable tanned cow that is dyed with a saddle tan antique dye to highlight lettering or custom carvings.

GALLERYUP

These covers are custom, so your imagination is the guide.

There many, many pictures of the leather book covers made of in the last few years.  They are found in the following gallery links.  If you find something that is similar to what you want custom made for you, please take note of the picture number and use that number when asking for a quotation for you. Picture numbers normally take the form xxxxxDSCyyyy.JPG. (Note: The picture number appears when looking at the single cover and  when you select picture details. On a laptop or desktop the "picture details" is a pull down menu near the top right. On a tablet or phone the "picture details" are selected with the three little dots near the top right.)

GUARANTEEUP

A simple guarantee: If, for any reason, you do not like your new Leather Book Cover -- you may return it, within 30 days, for a full refund.

I have and will continue to make mistakes. Giving a full refund of the money back and paying for the return postage is what I consider making amends for my mistake. Making and remaking a cover would put me out of business in a hurry.
