acurio bookbinding arts introduces uniquely designed journals and custom books. Each book is a carefully hand-constructed, one-of-a-kind volume made of archival materials with solid skin leathers or specially created cover designs.

Each journal created at bookbinding arts is unique. A variety of quality materials and solid skin leathers are used, all of the highest grade.
