Skilled Bookbinders – Rag & Bone has been binding books for almost 20 years. Each book is created solely by hand: the fabrics and papers are cut by hand, the boards (covers) are glued and wrapped by skilled bookbinders. Rag & Bone Albums are each drilled and sewn by hand one-at-a-time, and our journals and other bindings are assembled using traditional bookbinding tools and techniques. Rag & Bone use acid-free, archival papers for all of our books. And just as important, our skilled bookbinders create books which are well-bound, and made to last.
The Rag & Bone Blank Page Journal was the first book style we made almost 20 years ago. Today, the journals are made in the exact same way: hand-sewn signatures, hand-cut deckle edged pages, beautiful covers and a vellum finish paper that’s not too thick, not too soft and just right for ink, pencil, light wash and pen.
The beautiful handcrafted Guest books contain twenty 100% acid free, ivory pages. Choose pages with 360 printed signature lines or with blank pages to allow for lengthier comments, thoughts and wishes. Guest books lie flat when opened making it easy for guests to sign. Perfect for weddings and showers, also suited for funerals and other memorable events.
Rag & Bone has many Album sizes, bound with around 40 heavy-weight, 100% acid-free, blank pages.Each album is hand-sewn with coordinating ribbon and contains filler strips to prevent the covers from yawning when filled with photographs and mementos. A perfect photo album, memory book or sign-in book with many other creative uses. A keepsake to treasure for a lifetime.
