“I am just delighted!” -Ben
Ben’s favorite set of books, the 24 volume Memorial Edition of “The Works of Theodore Roosevelt” was bound in a faded red cloth that did not match his enthusiasm for the text within.
The new covers are quarter bound in Blue Roma Goat leather with Sage Linen cloth. The raised bands are highlighted with genuine gold stamping. The titles are stamped in the Cheltenham typeface which was extremely popular when Theodore Roosevelt was president. The newly re-bound Memorial Edition has a stately presence that commands attention in the bookcase.
A favorite customer brought in a beautiful book that was over 100 years old and needed a few repairs. We were able to replace the torn cloth hinge guard and save the marbled end sheets. The book is now in great working condition and is ready for many more years of use.
If you have a book that needs repair, call us at 317 636-5606. We can bring new life to your old books so they can enjoyed for many years to come.
Dear NLBCo folks,
Many years ago (about fifteen) I ordered a journal from your company. It was beautiful, with marbled hardboard covers trimmed in fine leather on spine and corners, hand-sewn binding, and a custom-stamped title. I’ve never found another like it.
The journal you made for me in 2002 has held up amazingly well, through use as both a diary and an outdoor sketchbook (pen and watercolor), and travels all over North America and Europe. Attached are some photos of how it looks today.
I will be calling tomorrow to order another one. I am so grateful that some things don’t change.
With best regards,

“We received our books yesterday and we are so impressed with the quality of the rebinds. It has been a pleasure working with you!” – Ware County Schools, Georgia
We are currently sending our Textbook Rebinding Information Packets to schools. Please call or email us for your school’s packet and secure a spot in our textbook rebinding schedule.
Our rebound textbooks are stitched with a heavy thread. Other binderies simply glue the pages. A stitched book is considerably stronger and less prone to failure than a glue bound book.
Library Buckram bookcloth will be used when pre-printed covers are not available.
We use high density binders’ board for the covers of rebound textbooks. Many other binderies use low density board. High density board will not bend and crush as easily as low density board. This is especially important for the corners of the cover which are subject to impact in daily use.
We add a cloth reinforcing strip to the top and bottom of the spine inlay to add support to this area of the cover. No other bindery we know of does this.
In addition to the lining around the spine of the text block, we reinforce the cover spine by adding case lining paper to the spine area and on to each of the cover boards. This provides much needed strength at the cover joints, a common point of failure on textbooks.
