100-year-old covers

100-year-old covers

These upcycled leather covers come from 100-year-old Federal Reporters that were heading to the landfill! In their previous lives, they were Department of Agriculture books from very early in the 20th century. The hardbound covers are enclosed in light brown leather and we’ve cleaned and oiled them to a soft, warm glow. 

Special Tuck Spot

Special Tuck Spot

For these journals, the original spine of the book is attached inside the back cover as a tuck spot for loose papers, business cards or postcards.

Because the covers are so old, some books have small imperfections or wear marks—making them all the more lovely.
