Cloth & Linen
A traditional album is often covered in the finest of fabrics. Choose from sturdy Buckrams to stand the test of time in libraries, to fine soft linen covers for folios to be cherished at home.
Whether for the finishing touches to strengthen the spines and corners of fabric albums, or full leather that boasts of luxury, choosing a real leather album will impress for years to come. Thick luscious bovine leathers from Italy complement thinner and softer grades of goat leather for the most exquisite pieces.
Printed cloth albums lend themselves to the most beautiful patterns going back to William Morris and beyond. Complement country houses and modern coffee tables alike with traditional fabrics through to fiesty bold prints.
Layouts & Printed Interiors
Traditional albums contain inner blocks that can be smyth-sewn either as a scrapbook with standard pages of 150+gsm through to full card with half-split wedges that allow for the introduction of photos without the books bulging. Acetate or translucent paper can be included to protect the pictures. Interiors can also be printed throughout, with a nameplate on the endpapers the most common choice.
Finish off an album with a matching slipcase as beautiful as the contents themselves. Make matching sets utilising different colours in the same family of materials, or create one large slipcase to hold several albums at once. Go further with a presentation box for those really special occasions.
