Natural Markings on Leather

We source the finest, high-grade bookbinding leathers for covering our editions. During their lifetime, animals may come into contact with various objects that can cut the skin. This results in visible scars on the surface of the leather. Although our bookbinders do their best to utilize cuts which have no visible markings, it is possible for these naturally occurring scars to be present on our editions.

We do not consider this to be a defect, but rather something which adds character to the edition. Instead of seeing an “imperfection”, we embrace the leather for what it is: a natural and beautiful material. Although our standard 7-Day Return Policy applies should you be dissatisfied with your purchase, you may want to consider this before making your purchase. The point is, we cannot guarantee that every leather bound copy of every edition we create will be entirely free of scarring.

We do understand that expectations may be high primarily due to the prices paid for some of our editions, but seeking total and absolute perfection in these handcrafted books can result in dissappointemnt.
