Double Book Cover for your AA Big Book & 12 & 12.
This price does/can/will include some minimal artwork like your name or a book title on the top cover. I am pretty flexible with any or all of that, so ask away...
This particular double cover was made for the 'paperback' versions of the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book and 12 & 12 books (in the paperbacks the 12 & 12 is the bigger of the 2 books in this set, but as you probably know in the 'hard' back versions the Big Book is the larger of the 2 books).
This cover has leather 'insert pockets' laced on the inside (over the pigskin leather lining) allowing you to insert your books to hold them securely in place.
I have also added a 'pen' slot on the binding of the top book for you convenience.
This cover closes with 3 straps/snaps; 1 that closes the the top book to the top cover, and 2 snaps that close the bottom cover to the top. You can open just the bottom book to read or study, however in order to do the same with the top book you must open all 3 snaps.
If you want (and I heartily recommend this) allow me to purchase (sold to you at cost) a Big Big Book (large print), and or the big print version of the 12 & 12 and properly reinforce the books in order to protect and preserve the paper covers for the foreseeable wear and tear on the book. The cost to you would be $8.50 for each book itself and $2.50 extra for the time and materials to do the job ($11.00 added to the total for the each book in your order). OR: you can send me your books and I will do the reinforcing to them instead? Extra shipping cost would be added as well, depending on the number and the weight of your books(s).
Also, there will be an increase to the overall cost of this double cover for the larger big print version books.
All my covers are hand cut, tooled, stamped, painted, laced, stitched, dyed. stained & or antiqued by me.
Snaps and or rivets are brass or nickel plated.
I use royal meadow grade tanned leather (see below for more info).
Lacing is 100% leather.
No children were harmed in the making of this product.
THIS COVER WAS SOLD...I will make another just like it...however please allow very minor variances as these products are handmade and no 2 covers will be 'exactly' alike. I will make a different custom designed book cover just for you with your name, sobriety date or other artwork you may want on request but please know that $Price$ is negotiable depending on how much or what kind of art you request on your cover. Also, shipping can less expensive if you elect to choose a slower non-insured method.
All orders shipped outside the U.S will sent by US Ground (7-10 days normally) and the cost will be determined by the size of the package and obviously where it is going. I will give you a quote if you like, however it may take me a day or two to get back to you with it.
The shipping cost below reflects the mailing of the cover without the book(s).

Royal Meadow leather hides are top quality tooling sides are handpicked from select cattle and tanned the old-fashioned English way. The difference is the use of extracts that oxidize into a beautiful golden color rather than the reddish tones that leathers tanned in Quebracho extract turn. The natural, glowing, russet leather color yields excellent tooling results. These sides are great for high end flat goods and any project where the leather is left natural. You can use Royal Meadow for your most treasured leathercraft projects. These sides are very clean, offering minimal waste when cutting projects and a minimum of insect 'damage'.
