All the books are created with 100% acid free preservation grade materials, "Red Label" binders board, linen thread, linen cords and ribbons, binders glues and pastes, silk threads, and ribbons.

Hand Bound Photo Albums are handcrafted by a Master Bookbinder (Arno Werner Bookbinders) from the highest quality skins available and heavy weight full cotton rag paper, Linen threads and cords, marble paper or silk end papers, hand sewn silk head bands, gold tooled or blind tooled. All bound books are customized for the client, these can have gold embossed titles, scroll work, and use a variety of skins.
