We accept custom box making assignments, both traditional & modern. Inquire here
Around the turn of the century :)-, we started making a handsome custom line of hand-crafted protective collector's modern clamshell cases. We design these to include embossed 'sculpted' covers inspired by book wrappers & cover illustrations like Daisy's face on the rare Gatsby jacket. The cases are finished in a selection of traditional leathers, fine cloth, custom marbled papers or Nuba® or any creative combination. Nuba® is a fine, supple & durable covering with a neutral ph that has the feel of velvety soft Italian Nubuck® leather. These case are purchased by TBCL's book clients, direct clients & the trade.

Highlights from Our Collector's Clamshell Cases
TBCL The Book Collector's Library is on vacation from June 17, 2022 to July 23, 2022.
We are in the middle of moving our shop. Our Collections of books are packed and will not be unpacked for about a month. We will still take Clamshell orders but delivery may take a bit longer but we can still accept these orders and produce the cases for you all. Specific arrangements can be made.
Thank you for your understanding and thank you for your patronage.
