Holy Books are often passed down the generations in a family and are well-loved and well-used books.

With fine paper and leather covers, they become brittle over the years and can need some TLC to get them back into a condition to continue to be passed down to the next generation.

Yap edged bible repair

Yapp-Edged Bibles

A Yapp-edged bible is one where the leather binding covers the page edges and protects the book's gilt edge from the sun and rain.

The limp nature of this binding style makes the book easy to hold in one hand during readings and sermons. A hard backed book can be re-bound easily into a Yapp Edged book for easier use.

Hard-Backed Bibles

Hard-backed Bibles or from publishers can be re-bound in cloth or leather with hand-tooling and foiling. You can also add a personalised message or quote to make the book extra-special for a gift.

Extra ribbons can be added as placeholders to locate multiple texts with ease.

 
 
 
 
 

I would just like to say a big thank you to John (and all at DAD) for the restoration of my Family Bible. I collected it today and the work is brilliant.

I’m so impressed with the quality of the workmanship.

Thanks again for all your help
