Bookcloth is both attractive and hardwearing. It can be made from a number of different materials such as linen and rayon, especially backed with paper for bookbinding. Cover your book or album entirely, or team your favourite bookcoth colour with a decorative or marble paper. Also suitable for foil embossing.


These papers make great book covers as well as endpapers. For your cover, pair your favourite with a bookcloth or leather spine.


We use recycled and full-grain leathers. If you want your book personalised with gold, silver or black foil, choose a smooth or lightly textured leather. Black foil shows best on lighter colours. Gold and silver foil look great on darker or bolder coloured leathers. Highly textured leathers won't hold embossing.
