Bespoke Handmade Leather books

Personalised Wedding Guest Books, Memory Books, Journals and Sketchbooks

An individually handmade, personalised leather book from artisan bookbinder Susan Green makes the perfect special gift. My bespoke service is a popular option for Wedding Guest Books and Memory Books and lets you have a Journal or Sketchbook made exactly to your requirements.

I've been making personalised books for individuals, couples, families and brands all over the world for the past ten years and I'd love to help you commemorate your special occasion.

What's available: Choose your own combination of leather and thread colours and make your book even more special by asking me to print a dedication on the title page, such as your names or a quotation. Explore your Bespoke options here or scroll down for inspiration. There is currently no extra charge for a bespoke book.

How to order:  Once you've selected your options - or if you need some help - email me with your choices: Please mention your deadline and also which country you'd like your book(s) delivered to. My lead time is 4 weeks but rush orders can often be accommodated.

What happens next: Once we've finalised all the details by email, I'll create a listing for you to purchase on this website. After receiving payment I order your materials (if necessary), slot your order into my production schedule and email you a titlepage sample for your approval or one round of amends. Once I've begun work on your book I'll update you with a likely delivery date. You'll get an email with tracking code when your order goes out for delivery and it will need signing for when it arrives.

Queries: Contact Susan Green the bookbinder with your requirements. Email or call +44 (0) 7748 759 371. I would be very happy to help you select your options or answer any queries.
