Chose the normal shipping and took about a month to reach me. Very satisfied with the quality! It was wrapped with brown paper and packed in a box. Item was packed well and came perfect. The brown paper was kinda sticking to the cover so had to tear it off carefully. Otherwise, really recommend this!

This book is beautifully designed and feels so luxurious! The proofing and selecting leather and fonts was easy and it was delivered in such good time! The only thing that detracts from how wonderful it is is the wood around one of the backs of the screws in chipped away and a bit of what looks like glue on the front cover, which are a little disappointing.

I just received this today. I bought this as a gift for my photographer brother to keep his printed photos in as a portfolio. It is AMAZING. the quality is so good, it is so well made! I cannot wait until I give him this. I had his named engraved and it is so smooth and perfect. Highly recommend- the sellers shipped it out very fast after my order.

Beautifully made & arrived very quick after communicating urgency with seller. Thankyou so much
We make books from wood, out of our workshop between the hills and the sea in Gordon, Australia.
Our range of bespoke timber books have found homes on every continent (bar Antarctica : we're working on it), and they serve a multitude of purposes. They've been wedding guest books, engagement presents, anniversary gifts, birthday albums, retirement presents. They have commemorated lives well lived, and celebrated life just begun. Hidden 'will you marry me' engravings have heralded the beginnings of new lives lived together. Couples have returned years later to order baby books to match their wedding albums. Graduates have carried our portfolios to their first interviews, and thanked us for the boost in confidence we provided. Our books can be found at cellar doors, cafes, creative workshops and airbnb homes. Each book begins life in a careful collaboration between us and our customers.

Frequently asked questions
How does the proofing process work?
I will send a black+white cover design based on the information provided to me in the order/checkout process. This proof will be sent through the internal Etsy message system NOT via email.
I'm happy to make adjustments to these proofs to ensure that all parties are satisfied with the final product, however after three proofs additional charges may be incurred for any further design changes.
How are the books made?
Lorgie is the original Etsy seller of engraved timber + screw post bound books. Sadly, our designs are now being widely replicated. However ordering with us ensures you will receive a genuinely high quality product.
Our books are made with timber veneered board, selected for strength and resistance to warping. The books are sanded and finished with a VOC free eco varnish, this gives the books a satin feel and to protect it over time.
The books have a double hinged front and back cover for maximum flexibility and the screw post binding method allows the pages of the book to be removed and refilled.
The 6x9" and 8.5x12" books, as well as the A5 and A4 portfolios, ship with a cotton drawstring bag.
How does custom image engraving work?
I am happy to engrave your own image - such as wedding or personal logos. Please supply a high resolution black and white digital file via the Etsy message system. JPEG and PDF files are best and the image should have clear lines with little to no shading. Photos can't be used.
