Bound to Travel Well

“My copy of ‘1,000 Places to See Before You Die’ was falling apart after using it for years. I decided to have it professionally rebound so that it would last longer. The people at the National Library Bindery were extremely nice and helpful and they did an amazing job. If I ever needed to have a book bound again, I would definitely take it here.”  — Beth M. 


The Works of Theodore Roosevelt in 24 Leather Bound Volumes

“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.
