Books can be given a completely new binding either because the original covers are lost or beyond repair, or the client may wish to upgrade a very ordinary cloth binding into a high quality leather binding, maybe to present as a gift.

Swallows and Amazons

The torn cloth cover has been replaced with a Half Morocco Binding with hand marbled sides.

The Marine Steam Engine

The cloth binding was badly torn with a large section of the front board cloth missing.
In this case a new cloth binding was created, copying the style of the original.
