We feel like we have the best job in the world when we get given commissions to create the most enormous books and leather journals. These epic pieces are one of our ultimate favorites to make and we've made a fair few over the past few years.
We're just wondering though whether these could possibly be the biggest handbound leather journals and books in the world.
The largest books we have made are A3 in size and they come in the following page counts but of course, they are all made to order so a more bespoke arrangement is totally possible:
72 pages/144 sides
96 pages/192 sides
144 pages/288 sides
192 pages/384 sides
If you come across anything bigger than ours, please do let us know, maybe we can compile a gallery of the largest ones from across the globe.
Here, we will show you some of our favorites from over the years and what they were used for:
This one was created for Wish 11:11 a trendy cafe and restaurant in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and is being used as a wish book for customers who can share their wishes and dreams by writing them in the guest book.
Absolutely love the Rustic Brown leather with the Kraft Brown card pages and they opted to have their logo and the words 'Make A Wish' hand stitched onto the front cover in a Natural thread colour.
You can check it out being used in the wild here:
Even better, if you're randomly there and visit them, do sign it and share it with us!
We can custom stitch a logo or any words of your choice onto your cover so get in touch if you have any ideas. We think this would also make for an incredible wedding guest book! It would have to be for a huge wedding I imagine.
We also made a larger version of the Rustic Brown with a whopping 192 pages/384 sides. This epic one was for a cigar company in Europe. We do wonder what they're filling it with......
RETIREMENT GIFT:Then we have this beauty in Indigo Blue leather and Sate Grey thread that was for a gentleman for his retirement and was to be filled with photos of his time together with his team. What an epic and sentimental gift this will have been. His team were going to fill it with old photos and notes, a reminiscent trip down memory lane.
A logo was stitched onto the cover along with his name.
LIFE JOURNEY BOOK:This was an extra special one that was made using a mix of white and brown pages and with an extra lovely quote on the cover from a husband to his wife and was intended to be used to write their life story and adventures in. What an epic journal it will be and what an amazing thing to pass down to their children.
PRESENTATION BOOK FOR TEXTILES MASTERS:These 2 were one of the 1st we made, both for 2 wonderful but unrelated ladies who were doing their Masters in textiles and wanted something to hold their experimental works, a bit like a portfolio.
These epic giant books have been used for so many wonderful things and projects. Get in touch if you'd like us to create something for you, whether you'd like something similar to what you see here or soemthing totally bespoke, we can have a chat and see what magic we can create.
