A Manticore is a mythological creature said to have the head of a man, the body of a lion, and the tail of a dragon. Fans of the 2000 – 2002 sci-fi television show, Dark Angel, may recognize this.

Everyone in my family is a bibliophile. We have books in every room in the house, literally. No shortage of reading material here. I also like to take my reading with me when I'm out and about, but an unprotected book that's been in my purse for even a few days is not a pretty sight (worn, scratched and dog-eared covers). So I came up with these book covers made of sturdy cotton canvas to protect them. And, since each book cover is essentially a small blank canvas, I couldn't resist embellishing them with the things that inspire me.

This book cover measures 13 1/2" x 7 5/8" (34cm x 19cm), and will fit a standard trade paperback book measuring 7" x 4 1/4" (17.5cm x 11cm). It is adjustable to the thickness of your book. The front cover of your book is inserted into a front pocket and the back cover is held in place by a grosgrain ribbon. It will fit books as thin as 100 pages or as thick as over a 1000 pages. The thickest book I have in my house is 1370 pages, and it fits!

All of my book covers are made with undyed, 100% cotton canvas, and edged with polyester satin ribbon. I chose undyed cotton canvas and white satin ribbon for the parts of the book cover that come in direct contact with the book, so that no fabric dyes will ever transfer onto and stain the pages of your books.

The decorative design is hand stenciled on the outside of the book cover with acrylic paint that has been mixed with a textile medium, to make it washable.

All of my book covers are made in my smoke-free, cat-friendly home.
