There is no better binding than this with a leather finish. In this days of cheap production, there are very few publications with high quality bookbinding and leather bound books. Each piece of leather must be cut and prepared by hand and makes each book one of a kind. The gilding is also a process that is done by hand, with specialized tools and 24k gold.
The bindery has a long history in binding legal, medical and accounting journals. Too many libraries are full of magazines that have passed through our hands over these years.
