Antique Book and Bible Rebinding/Restoration

Although we are a modern library bindery, our heritage is traditional old-world craftsmanship. We are specialists in the restoration of family Bibles, parlor Bibles, and recovering contemporary Bibles with a new cover. In our handwork area, we can restore old tintype photo holders, your favorite childhood book or any favorite old book that you may own.

Our Process

Materials that we use range from natural leather to bonded leather to linens and canvases that compliment your project. Bibles bound in natural leather should give you twenty-five or more years of additional use.

Our offerings include:

  • Special clamshell boxes in any size for the preservation of fragile materials or a special presentation.
  • Advice over the phone or online if you have problems with pests, water damage or dried out leather (commonly called red rot).
  • Adding life to hymnals from your church that are worn. We offer special pricing when 25 or more are bound at the same time.

Shipping Tips

When sending in your Bible or book for restoration, it is best to keep the book block as secure as possible. We suggest wrapping each book in a food wrap type product first (like saran wrap). This will contain all pages and pieces within this first wrapping.

Add a second layer of newspaper or bubble wrap and then you can box it or place your book in a mailer. If there is still space in your box, add additional newspaper as a filler. Our goal is to minimize any shaking that may occur during transport by UPS or USPS.

What Our Clients Say

In 2008 we ordered numerous family tree books to be bound....this company was wonderful to work with and our books were done at time they said they would be. Very impressed with their work!

Richard Brundige

Great staff and an incredible product! We visited on pi day (March 14th) and as we walkef in the door were quickly offered wonderful choices of delicious pies. From there they passionately answered our questions and got us the materials we needed. Thanks Denver Book Binding!

Denver Bookbinding and the Second Story Event Space is a great place to hold an event at. I had my baby shower there and felt nothing but welcomed onto their property. There is plenty of parking and it is very open and spacious. I even had Denver Bookbindings employees help me with setting up the tables and chairs. I would highly reccomend this event center to all my friends and family.

Ann Lindley

Excellent work always listen to what I want and make better suggestion than what I was thinking. I have several more books to have binding down, will only deal with Denver bookbonders.

Loved the spot, really nice atmosphere with comfy sofa chairs and a large bookcase full of books, they had a dog named Apollo that walked right up to me and everyone there was super nice.
