In addition to museum quality printing on archival matte paper, our vast selection of quality cover materials elevates our books, slipcases and clamshell cases to a new level. We believe that quality material is evident in the fit and finish and is an important component of experiencing your photographs in a handcrafted book format. We have divided our cover materials into three categories:
There is no additional surcharge for any of our cover materials (please email us directly for pricing).
Our premium list includes four suedes, four ultrasmooth and six leathers.
If you prefer imported bookcloth, you may choose from our stock selection pictured below. Bookcloth can also be paired with different premium materials or handmade papers. We can also obtain almost any cloth you might specify for your project from a source such as TALAS, NY. This latter option works well for supporting brand and/or end-client preferences.
There is a wonderful world of handmade papers which have been applied in many types of artistic projects.
We began using handmade paper as a cover material over 20 years ago; it is perfect for some applications.
Generally speaking, these papers are paired with a complimentary bookcloth. While they may appear delicate, book covers dressed in this style are durable and still carry our lifetime guarantee.
